Provider & Preschool Teacher

I am available for sitting on weekdays after 3 pm and weekends. I have open availability through the last week of August.

 

I have five years of childcare work experience with ages 1.5 to 14, and have childcare experience with older infants through sitting over the years for family and friends. I was a summer nanny in 2021 for a family with 3 children ages 2,4 and 8. I also have some twin care experience and feeding tube experience with 4 year old twins. I volunteered for 4 years with TACA (The Autism Community in Action) with ages 3 to 15.

 

I have taught tennis with a summer camp program for ages 5 and up. I have 10 months of experience as a preschool teacher at a Montessori style, play based preschool in Portland, OR, and a semester of experience as a Spanish speaking kindergarten TA for an elementary school program. I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in Russian.

Other facts about me...I am a senior pursuing a Psychology major and I play for my college’s NCAA Division III varsity tennis team. I have two years of tennis coaching experience.

WHAT PARENTS and SUPERVISORS SAY

 

“Natalie is incredible. We have 3 kids (Ages 8,4,2 at the time she was with us), we’ve had a whole lot of babysitters over the years and she’s the kind of person who just makes the house better. The kids instantly loved her, she has an incredible way with kids and she just gets them. Even my ones who are a little shy almost instantly realized Natalie is awesome. She is incredibly responsible, hard working, leaves the place better than she found it, totally safe driver. She drove my kids to activities and I trusted her completely. Whatever you are paying Natalie is more than worth it! You’ll be completely happy to have her.” - Kathleen F.

“Natalie was with us as a volunteer from 2014 to 2018 with TACA (The Autism Community In Action). She worked with children ages 3 to 15 and generally supervised 5 children independently or up to 100 children for group events with other volunteers and TACA team members. Natalie was a great volunteer, we love her! In her role working with children she supervised children and helped with events like crafts, bounce house, cookie decorating, sensory activity and other play. We would have her back any time, in a minute!” - Lisa A.
