Letter to the family

Dear host,

I have a Bachelor in French and Criminology with a minor in Music and a Master's in Literacy with a Concentration in ESL. When I was younger I attended an academic year abroad and was enrolled in the ISEP exchange program in Caen, France and studied French. On weekends, I gave private English lessons to French speakers. I also spent a month in St. Petersburg studying Russian and two weeks in Cuernavaca, Mexico studying Spanish.

At the moment, I am studying to be an x-ray technician, because I realized with the pandemic that the medical field is about the only field that wasn't laid off, plus that field also interests me. I am in my second semester of Anatomy and Physiology. I normally work as a college professor, but got laid off because not enough students signed up for my classes, so in the meantime, I am working as a substitute teacher for grades K-12. I love children, so I enjoy what I do.

I think I would be a strong candidate as a nanny or granny au pair, because I have an immense amount of experience as a mother, babysitter and au pair. Although my daughter is now an adult and married, I still babysit for family members. For example, I take care of my four year nephew and nine year old niece who keep me quite busy doing puzzles, playing ball, and swinging on the swing set. Because I substitute teach, I also recognize the needs of children at different age groups and can guide them.

I think living and working abroad could benefit me and your family, because I could teach your children English and at the same time improve my foreign language skills. Also, I am patient and caring and would be the best role model for your children, because I know children need direction, love and patience and I have those skills.

Experience

When I was younger I babysat and worked as a nanny for five boys who were very active with sports and private music lessons, ages infant to twelve years old, so sometimes the schedules were demanding, but I always made it work. I want to become a granny au pair or nanny, because I enjoy working and mentoring children and feel I have a great deal to offer. I am somewhat of a language buff, so that is one of hobbies, learning new languages. I believe living in another country is the best way to be fully emerged in the culture and language of that country. To me this experience is always inspiring.

Since I teach, my time is limited so I can teach for the month of December 2021 and in the middle of May to the end of July 2022, because school usually starts for me in August.
