  About Me
I am very energetic, honest and love working with children. I have worked as a Montessori teacher for a class of 2 to 4 year olds. I have experience working with children for many years. I am very neat and tidying up after the children is not a major task for me. I am very creative, nurturing, and sensitive to the varying needs and demands of children, I have a good sense of humor, I am patient and understanding. Making sure the children are happy, contented and taken care of without any short comings, is one of my skills. I don't consider it a challenge its something I love doing. Helping children grow, explore and learn about life, the positive responses and appreciation I receive from a child is a reward which is priceless. I love children and to make sure that they are happy, and that they know they have someone who they can depend on, who will be there to give them a hug when they need it and make sure everything goes smoothly. I love travelling, cooking, arts and crafts. My role is to provide support to the family by serving as a loving, nurturing and trustworthy companion to the children.
