Nanny in Vancouver

To whom it may concern, I am a qualified primary school teacher and was employed for two years in an inner city London school. This school had a high number of students for whom English is an additional language (80%). Each class comprised of 30 children. I am also a qualified social care worker and have experience with children with disabilities and behavioural problems. I taught English in Uganda for four months where most children did not have basic English. I have vast experience in child minding since I was 13 years old. I shared a child minding role in my family for three newborn babies. I have recently moved to Vancouver and am looking to gain immediate employment. My working visa states that I am eligible to work/care for children. I am very flexible and organised person and would love the opportunity to meet you and your family.
