Hello there dear family! Are you overwhelmed trying to decide which nanny is the best option for your family? Worry no more!! I am the best option for a family! Why? Simply because I truly love and enjoy working with kids. To me, every day around them is a fun adventure. Besides, I think that taking care of kids or teaching them is one of the few jobs where you actually get paid to have fun. Also, I am a great nanny because one of my personal strengths is patience, which makes me able to deal with situations that required tons of serenity and calm. In addition, I am highly responsible because I know that I will be taking care of the most important thing in your life: your kids. That is why I will never do anything that may put a child in any type of risk. I am also creative, nurturing, very energetic, active ( I work out five times a week), independent, and open minded. I like to read and document myself about the latest updates in child development, from professional and reliable sources, to ensure that the way I interact with the kids is not subjective, but is actually backed by science, research and investigation. Furthermore, I am highly aware of the importance of the physical and emotional well being of the kids, so I make sure that they receive all the care and love they need. When it comes to discipline, I always make sure I keep just the right balance between being loving and nurturing, but also firm when needed. I will find a way to show your kids that we set limits because welove them, and care about them. I am also your best option because I always keep the kids entertained and busy, so their days go fun, meaningful and different. To do so, I plan the week ahead (that comes from being a teacher), with a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that include and mix art, music, sports, reading, playing, exploring, discovering, creating, interacting, and more. I always plan spare activities, in case the kids do not feel like doing what I propose. I try to give them different options, and I let them choose when possible. Finally, I am an excellent option for a family because I care not only about the kids, but also about the parents. I try to be as supportive as I can, and I am always willing to help as much as possible. I am understanding, reliable, respectful, independent, tolerant, prudent, organized, punctual and flexible, and I have good leadership skills. I practice sports, I am a strong swimmer, and an excellent driver. If you made it this far, I hope I got you all curious about me, so here is a little bit more to add to the story. I am 28 years old, and I come from Colombia where I completed a 5 year university degree in Education with a specialization in teaching English. I lived in Virginia, USA, for two years --...), as part of a cultural interchange program called Au pair in the US. For the duration of the program, I studied advanced English grammar and phonetics, and helped a family taking care of two of the most wonderful kids I know. In 2015 I was awarded a scholarship to study in the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivieres, as an exchange student for the winter session (I am a little bit of a nerd). After going back to Colombia I realized how much I loved Canada, so I decided to apply for the Live-in Caregiver program, and I came to Alberta in January 2017. Currently, I am a live-in nanny in Okotoks, where I take care of three amazing kids, Carson (8), McKenna (6), and Emersyn (2). It has been a great experience to work with them, but once my contract expires (that will be January 2019), I would like to move out of Okotoks for two main reasons: I love all what Calgary has to offer, and 7 months ago I met a one of a kind wonderful man who happens to live in the city, and of course I do not want to be so far from my boyfriend anymore. Additional fun facts about me: I have a great sense of humor, I am a big fan of Star Trek and Harry Potter. My second love is science and everything that has to do with it, my favorite hobbies are reading, exploring the city and the province, going for outdoor adventures in Banff, Kananaskis, and Jasper, going on road trips, visiting museums and libraries, camping, traveling, learning about other cultures, and weightlifting. Finally, here is the link for a short video I made before I came to Canada last year. It shows some of my experience as an au pair in the US and some other things about me https://....com I hope I sound like a good fit to your family, if not, we can always talk a little bit more and come to an agreement. I am always open to new options, and I am great at adapting to new situations. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at kathe-0906 at hot mail dot com ;) or at --.... I am looking forward to talk to you! Katherine.
