Amy’s Bio

Update: I will be available to work full time starting November 3, 2014

For the past four years I have been a Nanny/Teacher for families who have had girls. I have stay with them as needed until they have gone to daycare around age 3. Part of my role has been to provide educational experiences which have included American Sign Language, themed weekly activities, and trips to library and parks. I also have prepared healthy meals and snacks by cooking organic and vegetarian meals.  I am a mom having raised three children who are now 25, 21and 19. I have worked with children in the before and after school age child care field for over 10 years, as well as over 10 years of experience with program ministries with children from birth through high school in the church. I respect all persons' faith journey and will not be disrespectful of your personal beliefs. I enjoy working with infants, preschoolers, elementary children, and middle school students. I have a passion for playing with children. Children learn so much through play. I love to read books and help with homework, getting children off the couch and playing in the back yard or exploring the city, especially the library and parks. I have First Aid and CPR (infant) certifications.
