I have done a number of babysitting and nanny jobs previously, ranging from 1-4 kids, ages 1-11. I would watch over the children and provide a comfortable and fun atmosphere for them. I frequently helped the children with homework, fed them, took them to practices, and provided for their basic needs. I am responsible and dependable, but also fun and energetic. I enjoy interacting with kids, playing games, and doing activities with them. I have a natural love for children and through my experience I have developed excellent skills in taking care of children of all ages. I have also volunteered at children's hospitals and care facilities. I am striving to become a pediatric nurse. I am highly motivated, experienced and patient.
Heather is a motivated, bright & fun nanny! She's current working on her PhD in Psychology. She's worked with children at camp, babysitting, teaching yoga & in a hospital setting. Heather is working hard at school and enjoys working with kids because they remind her to be present and in the moment. She tries to be a role model by emulating her mother's characteristics, most of all, showing kindness in to others.
Heather says "I am a good role model because I believe in the power of modeling. Be the change you wish to see in others (Gandhi). I believe I must hold myself to the same standards I hold other people to. With that I also believe in humility and kindness, first starting with yourself and then it can radiate out to others."
I recently graduated Cum Laude from the University of Washington, where I double majored and minored in the Honors Department. There I was given the Citizenship Award, the Honors Award, and the Fritz Scholarship. I traveled and studied abroad in rural Sub-Sahara Africa in Zambia. I worked part time while paying for college full time. I was a Senior Gift Council member, a National Society of Collegiate Scholars member, a Peer Ambassador, and a Global Opportunities Adviser. I was an intern at the King County Correctional Facility as a inmate mentor and tutor, as well as a research intern for Elmer Dixon, who was the co-founder of the Seattle Black Panther Party.
I recently decided go back to school to pursue my Masters in Teaching. I am currently completing my Social Studies Endorsement at Portland Community College, and will be going back to the University of Washington in 2016 to become a High School Teacher.
I love anything and everything associated to education and would love to help middle school/high school aged children with studying, homework, test taking, organization or preparing for their SATs.
Madeline is currently studying Biology at Reed College. She is very friendly, encouraging and positive. Her role model is her older sister. Madeline's sister encouraged her to try hard and to have high standards. Madeline believes that by demonstrating enthusiasm, taking her own academics seriously and by being a positive person, she demonstrates role model behavior to her students. She goes the extra mile by taking the time to explain difficult problems step by step, and identifying problems by asking questions. Tutoring is inspiring to her because she gets to help students succeed and gain confidence.
Madeline says "I feel that I am a good role model because I demonstrate that you don't need to come from a wealthy background or a private high school to exceed academically. As a young adult who has successfully held several part time positions, graduated top of my class in high in high school, and completed two years of college (so far), I think that I can show kids that they can make of their education what they want, and that like many things in life they will only get out of it what they are willing to put into it."
