Hi i’m Savannah, I have worked at Khandallah Little School (ages 2-4) for six months before I moved to Otago University. My main role as a substitute teacher was to play, read and teach basic skills. I also had a summer nannying job for an 8 year old girl, involving school pick up, transporting to after school activities, making after school snack and general house-hold cleaning. This job enabled me to clarify my understanding of what care, kindness and responsibility looks and feels like. When I went back home for the summer, I found myself in the perfect nannying. I adjusted quickly to the nannying style required and the family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. My job included picking the 8 year old up from school every weekday, preparing her an afternoon meal and then taking her to her after school activities such as ballet and gymnastics. I also offered to do general cleaning around the house including folding washing and dishes. Both jobs required high levels of reliability and clear communication.
I look forward to meeting your family!
