Letter to the family

Dear Family,

My name is Carla. I am a 31 year-old (female) Australian Italian Dual Citizen living in Melbourne. I hold a number of qualifications one of them is a certificate III in education numeracy and literacy and worked as a teacher's aide as a local highs-school aid for a year. Further to this qualification, I also hold a bachelor of Science. I have a fondness for education and culture.

When it comes to child care experience, my experience is predominantly in the classroom for the year I was a teacher's aid assisting those students with mental or physical disabilities to keep up with mainstream curriculum.
The year I spent as a teacher's aide was extremely enriching and I would like to have a similar experience in a country abroad where I can combined my two loves of culture and enriching young lives through care.

I believe I would make a suitable candidate for hosting as my maturity and professionalism will work well in managing a house hold.

As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 12 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 1 to 10 years. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend day time language classes.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the live in nanny arrangement.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
Carla

Experience

I have had a year experience in working at a teacher's aide at a local high-school assisting in the classroom for years 7-12 as well as taking after school care for an hour each day. During this time I gained a fondness for education and care for children. I assisted teacher's within the classroom with subjects such as English, Math and Science.

I would like to become a nanny abroad to experience another culture through living with locals and gaining the full experience of living in a different country. I would also like to learn another language. As well as use the experience to cultivate skills in caring for young children which will assist me when I become a teacher.
