Letter to the family

I am a 36-year-old Canadian woman who will be re-locating to Nassau at the end of the summer. I have lived and worked as an elementary and Special Education Teacher in Canada for the last 13 years. Before my career, I devoted my time to my studies, while attending University of Maryland Baltimore County on a full athletic scholarship. Upon graduating, I returned home to earn my Bachelor of Education, while coaching competitive swimming with Queen's University and a local swim club, The Kington Blue Marlins. I was also a lifeguard for 10 years and am certified in CPR and First Aid. I played piano from age 7 to 17 and have my Grade 8 with the Royal Conservatory of Music. I come from a lovely family with two sisters and my mother and father, who are both now retired from Queen's University. I enjoy being active, participating in yoga and Pilates classes and spending time riding my bike and hiking. I'm interested in becoming certified to teach Pilates at some point in the future. I love to cook and am always trying new recipes, with emphasis on healthy and delicious meals. I feel as though I am well rounded and would be a great addition to any home and family.

Experience

Although I have no direct experience as a Nanny, I feel as though I offer a lot in the necessary areas. Most importantly, I love working with children. I am firm, but fair, with high expectations. I believe I set boundaries, which allows children to thrive. Many past students have commented on how I'm "nice without ever yelling". I am calm, patient, while still maintaining my authority. I personally thrive on structure and routine and recognize that children need predictability and security, by knowing what they can expect from me. I value visual schedules, clear expectations and use positive reinforcement and praise as my main tactic for managing behaviour.

Beyond my work with children, I keep a very tidy home and enjoy cleaning and cooking. I love flipping through cookbooks and choosing something new to try! I am confident cooking many cuisines and enjoy preparing food for others.
