About Me

This fall I will begin classes at New York University to obtain a Master’s Degree in Special Education, Early Childhood. I love learning and I strive to pass that passion on to the children I work with. I have an understanding that every day is full of teachable moments for not only my students, but for myself as well.

UCF has prepared me to work with any child, at any age and with or without a disability. I was a junior intern in an 8th grade general education mathematics classroom, where I was responsible for accommodating materials for the students with special needs, while teaching the class as a whole.

I know learning does not stop once out of the classroom, which is why I am excited for the opportunity to be a nanny. I love giving children a safe, fun and active learning environment so they can love to learn. I love being active and I am a great, healthy cook always looking for healthy variations of foods that children like.

In addition to the skills required to be a successful nanny, I am also a very tech-savvy individual always itching to learn the latest innovations. I like to utilize my spare time volunteering for JAFCO, a charity close to my heart as well as the Special Olympics when time permits.
