I am a college student and have 4 years of elementary and special education courses under my belt, but because of the high price of college, I have to take a year off to work before I can student teach and finish my degree. I have numerous experiences with children young and old and would love to nanny for a family this year in or around Indianapolis. I have attached my resume here! I will be moving to Indy in august so I'm sorry I could not start until then, but please email me and we can talk something out! Just a little about my experience. I have worked at a daycare for 2 years in the one-year-old classroom as the assistant teacher. I teach group swim lessons to 3-5 year olds and private swim lessons to students with special needs.
