The College Nannies and Tutors franchises have one common goal- to Build Stronger Families®. Sharon Ragland-Keys knew her 18 years in Human Resources Leadership roles combined with her passion for helping others made owning a CNT franchise an easy decision.
Sharon looked at several businesses and chose CNT because it aligned with her professional experience, and it’s a full services model for families needing assistance from cradle to college. As a working parent, Sharon identified the need for an agency like CNT, and since opening in 2009; she has been dedicated to providing nanny and tutoring role models for families across Southeastern Michigan.
Her positive impact on the community doesn’t stop there. In 2010, Sharon joined the Canton Chamber of Commerce and serves on the board promoting the organization’s work to bring businesses, local government and citizens together to advance the economic prosperity of the community.
Sharon is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources by the Society of Human Resources Management and member Greater Ann Arbor Society for Human Resource Management.
Sharon hopes to continue CNT’s vision and is committed to helping families and her employees have an amazing experience.
My name is Rachel and I am an early childhood education and elementary education major at EMU. I am a good role model because I work hard to reach my goals, I make smart choices with my life, I have a good work ethic, and I feel that my life experiences have had a great impact on my life in positive ways. I love working with children; it is my passion. Part of being a good role model is by demonstrating to others how to work hard for what you want to achieve in life and I feel that I am a good example of that.
I relocated to the YPSI/A2 area from San Diego, CA almost four years ago where I went to school and worked at a child care center. Since then I have had a number of great opportunities to meet new families and find new activities to participate in my new home town. I have been in the field of education for over ten years. I have had the privilege of being a nanny for over three years. It has been a very rewarding and exciting experience. In addition to my work experience at a child care center I have even more experience as a babysitter, household manager and tutor of all ages. I have found that working with children and parents is my career path and I will be continuing my schooling in the field of Special Education.
Helping others understand material more fully and efficiently is a skill I have always done well, and also enjoyed. From my experience I feel that I have been very effective in building the knowledge and skill base those I have mentored. These informal opportunities were chances for me to strengthen my own pursuits in academia, as well as build my interpersonal expertise. A good tutor should feel accomplishment in their student's achievements, as I do.
I am a good role model because I have good morals, I know how to be very supportive of students who struggle, I am very confident and know what it takes to be a strong woman and succeed in life. I also know how to express my opinions freely and I always stick to what I believe is right.
