Karen’s Bio

I am a mother of two adult children, a boy & a girl, & believe in creating a happy & peaceful environment for children to learn, explore & be creative. I enjoyed every phase of my children's lives. I raised them in a positive, non-critical, loving home, & they have grown-up to be happy, caring & responsible adults. In college, I studied psychology & took courses such as, Early Childhood Development. I am young at heart & get along well with infants to teens providing a calm & respectful environment for them. I am fun-loving & appreciate the needs of children. Being a very good listener, allows me to learn about their likes & dislikes, quickly. I am always ready to read or play with them, & enjoy helping, if needed, w/homework. I would be happy to drive your child(ren) to their activities, or other appointments. Preparing snacks & meals are no problem. I love to teach, & taught 2nd gr. Religious Ed. classes for 3 yrs. (class size: 20-25 kids). I made learning fun. Prior to being a Nanny, I worked for The Transportation Security Admin. (TSA) & the Department of the Navy & held both a Secret Clearance & a Homeland Security Clearance during the past 30 years. As you probably know, that means that I have had separate & extensive background checks for both of these clearances. However, I have also provided you with a background check through this site. One of my most recent Nanny position is as a full time (40+ hrs) nanny for four children, 8, 6, 3, & 20 months old. I saw that they ate their breakfast, dressed & were ready for school on time, and took them to the bus stop. Three days a week, I took the 3 year old to & from preschool. On the days he was not in preschool, I fed him lunch with his younger brother. Then put them both down for naps everyday. I helped the older two children with their homework, when they came home from school, & then played with or supervise the children's play inside and/or outside. My other duties were: laundry, dishes, vacuuming, sweeping and washing floors. I will provide you with this family's name, phone number, and email address along with other clients upon request. I would be very happy to talk with you on the phone, in-person, or through messages on this site.
Thank you for your time.
Karen
