Letter to the family

Hello prospective family! My name is Kendall, and I'm from Chicago in the United States. I will finish my bachelors this spring in English Literature, History, and Scandinavian Studies. I plan to take a gap year before beginning my masters and doctoral degree in Scandinavian Studies.

At the age of 9, I became an orphan and grew up with several different family members after this age, often looking after their children. Due to this, I've loved looking after young children from an early age. I have the most experience with children under the age of 5, including experience looking after 3-5 children under the age of 5 at the same time. I also have experience with newborns. I cared for one child from birth to age 5, while at the same time I also served as an occasional baby-sitter for four children, ages 6 months, 2 years, 3 years, and 5 years. I am familiar with the Montessori methods of education as I served as a full-time nanny for a child enrolled in Montessori school.

Not only can I take care of multiple children, but I also clean, bake, and cook. I enjoy cleaning almost as much as I enjoy looking after children. I am open to helping with chores around the house, cooking meals, baking with the children, as well as looking after pets.

Experience

In high school, I was an avid baby-sitter and even nanny. I lived with my cousin and her husband upon the birth of their son, and as my cousin's husband worked long hours, I cared for the child for much of his beginning years. I have experience getting children ready for school and bringing them to and from school.
During the COVID pandemic, I was able to spend more time with my family, particularly the little ones in my family. Beginning in March, I served as a full-time nanny for my 5-year-old cousin. After her Montessori school shut down due to the pandemic, we continued her schooling at home. We carried out scientific experiments in the kitchen, learned about other countries and cultures through interactive games and lessons, went on outings throughout the city of Chicago including art museums and parks, and often ended the school day by playing Monopoly, her favourite game. I helped her when she began kindergarten online in the fall of 2020.
Following this, I traveled to California to help care for my cousin's newborn son.

I would like to become a nanny abroad because I previously lived in Sweden for about 10 months but had to leave suddenly due to the pandemic. I love learning new languages and about different cultures. I speak fluent Swedish and understand Norwegian. I am currently learning German. I have also previously studied Modern Icelandic, Old English, and Middle English.
