I'm a nanny because:
My name is Karlton, I am 25, and I am a very outgoing and energetic individual. I have been working with kids for over 10 years now. I major in Early Childhood Education and film at Columbia College Chicago.
I first started working with kids in my mother's home daycare which she still runs today. I have worked with kids from ages 1 up to 12. I really enjoy working with kids because I love to see the growth and development and to know I had an influence on it makes me feel good. For example potty training, it feels good to know I had an impact on it (the first time they go, you get excited/and so they get excited and they know your happy so it makes them happy).
I first started in home daycare when I was 15, that's where I learned how to change my first diaper. From there I worked at a summer camp with 5 to 7-year-olds in the sports camp in the mornings and in the afternoon, I would be with the 8 to 12-year-olds. I worked at Ridgeville Park District for just over 5 years until I left for college.
My next job was a 2-year-old teacher assistant in the take two program at the city of Evanston. I really enjoyed that age the most. I also worked in the preschool helping out during lunchtime and putting kids down for nap, and the after school program during the school year. During the summer I was a camp counselor for the same company for 3 years.
I also took care of a girl for over a year who has type 1 diabetes in a classroom. I delivered insulin, gave shots, checked blood sugar, and also weighed out carbs for lunch.
I worked at an elementary school in the lunchroom and playground as a supervisor for 1st 2nd, and 5th graders for 2 years. I also coached T-ball and soccer for 5 to 7-year-olds and I do a lot of babysitting.
I babysit 2 girls,ages 9 and 6, 1 girl (diabetic type 1) and her brother age 5. I also was a nanny in the past for 1 boy he just turned 3. I would pick him up in the mornings give breakfast, take to school, and sometimes take home. I also babysit for my mom she has fostered 3 kids who are now my siblings. Mainly every job I have held has been with kids and I really enjoy it.
I do own two big dogs, two Siberian huskies so I am very comfortable with animals especially big dogs. I go running with my dogs so I am very active and love to get down on the ground and be eye level and play. I currently live in Chicago but I will be moving to Orlando, FL first week of December. Sooner if job comes available.
I also can cook very well, I am pretty broad in that area, I change diapers, good with potty training, and I clean.
