Nanny in Victoria

Why should you pick me? Well, let me tell you! My name is Tasha, a fourth year student in the Elementary Education program at the University of Victoria. As a preservice Elementary school teacher I am obviously passionate about working with kids! I sincerely believe there is as much I can learn from them as they can learn from me. My teaching and child care experience has developed my intuitive attentiveness to childrens unique needs and interests. I know how to plan and organize engaging, creative activities for kids of all ages. I am aware that when working with kids you are a role model. Most of the time I am just as energetic as the kids, so I understand the need to move and be outside. I believe I can demonstrate how to positively channel energy in fun and creative ways. Everyday is an adventure; I love nature and the outdoors. Specifically, I am an avid runner, surfer, climber, hiker, kayaker and cyclist. I also enjoy public speaking, creative writing, and photography. Thanks for reading about me! Look forward to hearing about you.
