Bilingual Versatile Nanny: Experience With All Ages

Nanny in Burnaby

A little about me: I flourish in environments where I can be personable, helpful, and flexible. I am a musician and play guitar, piano, ukulele and sing. I love biking, spending time outdoors, and enjoy various sports. I am from Quebec and speak French fluently and I have advanced Spanish skills. I am familiar with circus arts and enjoy fine and performing arts of all kinds. Most of all, often I feel like I have more love to give than I can handle so my happiest moments have always been uplifting others and sharing in their joys - as well as their struggles. What I am looking for and what you should know: I am in the process of getting my First Aid up to date as well as obtaining a driver's licence. Concerning the former, I have survived quite well using the transit and biking around to all the neat places Vancouver has to offer. I am leaning towards more full-time hours but this can be discussed. I am off school right now - and will be beginngin my teaching practicum in the fall for French Immersion Elementary at SFU - so technically I can start whenever but I will have to end mid-August as I need to return home because of an on-going family health issue.
