Meet Gretchen

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I have worked in childcare for over 15 years. I am a mother of four and they are all my best friends. We just recently moved to the Portland area and are loving the people and nature. I have been teacher here in the United States and abroad in Egypt and Italy. I have also worked as a nanny and a language tutor. I love kids and doing kid things. I'm not just saying that, I would prefer working with kids over any other job. I love their innocence, their frankness and their simplicity. Because I'm a mother of four I'm also very responsible, without even thinking. I have excellent references.
