References "She adores kids and is so good with them. She is so creative and fun... She is very patient and really takes the time to listen to the kids. Not everyone has that gift."

Lizzie has worked with children for many years, primarily in group or classroom settings, as a teacher. She has learned about nannying through a close friend who is a nanny and through families at the daycare where she currently works. She has realized that she would like to move on towards working with children in a one-on-one in-home setting as she continues her childcare/education career. Lizzie says "it would be nice to slow down and be able to tailor things to children's particular interests." Her approach is to start out by getting to know kids and then use that as a jumping off point for planning age appropriate activities and projects. Lizzie is very open to assisting a family in managing their home. She describes herself as a person who is "very organized and likes to finish tasks assigned to me effectively and efficiently." Lizzie will appreciate understanding what's important to a family and being able to take things from there so that they can rely on her support. She would especially enjoy working with a family who is interested or involved in the Montessori approach. She attended Montessori school herself and has studied the method during college.
