Greetings! As you’ve seen from my profile, my name is Gemma, and I am eager to find a nanny position in the Houston area. I’ve lived in Texas for just over a year and I love it! As the second youngest of nine siblings, I’ve had a lot of experience with kids in my everyday life. My oldest niece was born when I was 8, and since then 25 other nieces and nephews have followed, so I had to learn very quickly how to care for children, and it soon became one of my favorite things. My husband and I relocated last month from San Antonio where I worked as a teacher for a charter school called Great Hearts. There I taught 7th grade Literature and Composition, as well as Texas history and Medieval history. I also have prior teaching experience as an Irish dance teacher for a couple of homeschool groups in Northern Virginia, where I attended high school, and Steubenville Ohio, where I attended college. I’m very passionate about learning both in and outside of the classroom; I love being able to take kids on outings, read with them, or spend time with them outside. Even with my teaching experience, I still think that those real experiences are when children tend to learn the most. In short, I have always seen it as a kind of calling to work with children. Even though I’ve done a lot of different jobs, I’m at my happiest when I get to work with young people, and especially when I get to do something creative. I would love the opportunity to be a nanny this semester, if not the year.
