Nanny in Thornhill

I have my Bachelor of Education from the University of Ottawa and my Ontario Teacher\'s Certificate. I have over 22 years of classroom experience and I am looking for a change in my career and would like to do something outside of the classroom. I have successfully raised a 29 year old daughter and love working with children. I have a strong passion for education and love to educate young minds and help them blossom into well-rounded, responsible and successful individuals. My greatest strengths include being highly organized, resourceful, I relate well with young children and adults, love to learn new things and experience new challenges and am flexible. In addition to teaching in the classroom I have been a private tutor for children from JK - Grade 8. I love working one-on-one with children and enjoy the close relationship that we build together. I look forward with great anticipation to discussing with you the many ways in which I can make a significant contribution to your family. SANDRA SHIN 1014-110...
