Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello, I would like to introduce myself and my family.
We are a family of 5 (my daughter is grown and does not live here so there are only 4 living in the home. I am a nurse practitioner working Monday through Friday. My fiance is a middle school teacher. We have twin 11-year-old boys, both with ADHD, and one with very mild autism. During this time, they attend hybrid school due to COVID meaning they only go to school 2 days a week and do online learning the other 3 days a week. They are having a very hard time keeping up with school and staying home alone all day. Therefore, we are looking for someone who would like to live with us to help keep the house clean during the day and keep the boys on schedule. I would like someone with experience in teaching, particularly kids with special needs. We live in a great little neighborhood right on the lake so if you like to hike, swim, fish or kayak you would love it.
We do ask that the children clean up after themselves, but they need guidance and instruction, which we can not provide when we are not here.
They love swimming, kayaking, walking, biking, and playing their instruments (french horn and trombone).
They are super smart and very compassionate boys who love to play outside and have fun!
The kids go to their fathers every other weekend so you would not need to do anything then. Also, I can care for them when I get home. We do have an extra room for you to stay in, and you would eat whatever you prepare since it is typically dinner time when I get home. Of course, we would provide shopping money for you to get what you want.
Lexington,SC is a small town, and we live about 5-10 minutes outside of it. We are about 30 minutes outside of Columbia, SC which is the state capitol. We are about 90 minutes from Charleston, 3 hours from Myrtle Beach, and a couple of hours from Asville NC.
