Wanted: Full or part time live in or live out nanny/personal/family assistant position
I am seeking a family from the DC/Maryland/Virginia area with children age 3 and up who are looking for more than just someone who can cook and clean up after their kids. If hired and those were requirements, I would of course fulfill them, but I offer much more in addition. The ideal family, in my mind, has a parent or parents who understand the need for visual arts in a child’s life and knows the enormous educational benefits regarding all school subjects such participation brings, and are looking for someone who is willing to commit to their children’s success on a long term basis. I prefer a full time opportunity, but welcome part time as well. I am comfortable with families with special needs children including ADHD, ODD, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, bi-polar and any other related behavioral, developmental or emotional issues.
I have devoted my life to the improvement of young people. Areas of experience: Working with and teaching all school subjects to emotionally, and learning-disabled boys age 6-18. A live in direct care specialist and teacher at a residential treatment facility for boys with anger management, abandonment and traumatic past issues, ADHD, ODD, bi-polar, high functioning autistic and Asperger’s syndrome as well as numerous other disorders.
I have also been an assistant teacher for normally developing and above average kids age 3-6 in Reggio Emilia and Montessori settings.
I also have experience as an after school and summer camp program creator of an award winning art curriculum that in the course of six short years has garnered more than 240 wins in national contests for the children I have taught (a record unsurpassed in the region) and won two awards of curriculum excellence.
I am trained in CPR, First Aid and CPI (Crisis Prevention Intervention). I hold numerous awards of excellence in teaching, have attended hundreds of hours of additional training and research and at seminars have presented case histories and studies of successful strategies and interventions involving my students. Additionally, while I’m not a world-class chef, I can create numerous delicious dishes for you and your children to enjoy.
I can help you in your quest for strategies in attaining the best school experience for your children including discussion of questions to ask the teachers based on current circumstances.
