What part of Cincinnati do you live in? I currently live in Mount Lookout, but I am moving to West Chester in the beginning of May.
Where are you from originally? I am originally from Minster, Ohio which is a really small town about 2 hours north of Cincinnati.
What language(s) do you speak? I speak English.
How long have you been a nanny? I have over nine years of experience in childcare including being a nanny and working in various school settings as well. I was a nanny throughout high school and college and I now nanny during the summers.
Do you have a favorite age and why? I have experience working with children from newborns to teenagers, so it is difficult for me to have a favorite age! I would say I have a favorite age range from 2-3 years old. Children at this age start to show their personality and are exploring, becoming more independent, and being social and curious. I love to introduce children of all ages to new challenges and watch them grow!
Funniest nanny moment: I like to ask kids I nanny for how old they think I am. Most of the time the kids are way off and I get some pretty funny guesses! I was nannying for a family with two kids and one of them guessed that I was 7 years old and the other one guessed 75 years old. I am 24 years old, so they were a little off!
Favorite thing about being a nanny: My favorite thing about being a nanny is being part of a child’s development. It is very rewarding watching a child face challenges and be successful. I love to watch children grow and know that I can be a positive impact in their life!
What is your strongest quality as a nanny? My strongest quality as a nanny is my experience in early childhood education. I know about the different stages of childhood development as far as where kids should be at and how I can help them explore their curiosities. I have a passion for bringing creativity to kids and helping them learn!
Favorite place to bring children on an outing in Cincinnati: I love to taking children of all ages to the various beautiful parks in Cincinnati. I also love to take kids to the pool, zoo, and aquarium.
Favorite activities to do with kids on a rainy day: On a rainy day, I love to do arts and crafts and play board games!
What is your educational background? I graduated from the Ohio State University with a bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education with a 4th/5th grade and reading endorsement. I am currently a first grade teacher at Monroe Primary School. I have experience student teaching in a daycare, preschool, 1st grade, and 2nd grade classroom.
What do you like to do in your free time? I love to cook, paint, listen to music, and explore the city of Cincinnati! I love to be outdoors when the weather is nice, and I also love to stay in on a rainy day to read books and watch movies.
When are you available to start a new position? I am available to start on May 28th!
