Letter to the family

Hello! My name is Abigail; my friends call me Abba. I am from the state of Iowa in the United States but have studied business with a minor in art at a private university in Florida for the past two years. I have 3 sisters, a brother-in-law, and a niece and nephew.

I am hoping to get my masters in children's therapy after I graduate with my major in business studies.

Experience

Before moving to Florida, I worked in Iowa as a nanny during my gap year. I have nannied for a total of 4 summers and one full year. I have also taught elementary Sunday School, worked with underprivileged children with a local program in my hometown, and done childcare for over 25 families.

I would love to have the opportunity to become an Au Pair to experience a new culture while still doing what I love—working with children. I have a passion for giving children a safe and encouraging environment to be in. I am hoping to find a family that I could live with and I would be more than happy to help with housework, cooking, or yard work during my stay.

I have stayed overnight for several different families while the children's parents were out of town and have also tutored the kids that I nannied. For me, nannying means encouraging children to learn, be active, and have fun, and doing it all with them. When it come to kids, I am all-in. I love to play games, read books, inspire children towards kindness, and actively engage with them. It is important to me that kids feel heard and have a safe space to process, think, create, and play.

I have treasured my years nannying and have been honored to work for incredible families. By the time I was finished working for them, they truly felt like family. My hope is that I would be a wonderful fit for your family as well!
