Nanny in Mayfield Heights, Ohio
Hello - I’m an American who lived in Winnipeg MB from --.... I was an Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy at the University of Manitoba. I returned to the States to live in Brooklyn NY. In 2016, I returned to my childhood home of Cleveland Ohio to help care for my aging mother. I “retired” in Cleveland but I’ve been babysitting through Care...... I’m eager to return to Canada. In Brooklyn, I taught at the University of Long Island and I practiced at the New York City Board of Education with children 4-16 years of age. I've worked with children as young as premature babies in neonatal intensive care units. I enthusiastically interact with children and I've been called a stand-in grandmother by several families. I'm knowledgeable in typical and atypical child development, and I have 40 years of experience working with typically developing children and children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism-spectrum disorder. I seek fun and adventure playing indoors and outdoors. Indoors, I find joy by reading, doing crafts, and playing games. I rough house ("play wrestle") when children seek activities with whole-body movements and pressure (beginning about 2 years of age). Outdoors, I enthusiastically take walks and go to nearby parks and playgrounds. My expertise includes Dr. Stanley Greenspan's DIR/Floor-time intervention, so I've become skilled at following the child's lead while setting limits on challenges. I'm empathetic while gently pushing a child to problem solve. I'm comfortable with pets. I grew up with a dog; I live with 2 cats, and I sometimes walk a neighbor's dog. If interested, please give me a shout through my email at: [email protected]
