Bilingual Governess / Nanny - Live-In


I'm an Educational Professional with a BA in Modern Literary Studies (1999), and an MA in Spanish Literature (2002). For the past two years I worked as a Bilingual Live-in Nanny in Antigua, Guatemala. I was responsible for the care and education of a little girl from birth to the age of 2, and her older brother from the age of 7 to the age of 10 years old. I really enjoyed this line of work, and I am very excited with the prospect of continuing my owrk in this field.

Before working as a Nanny, I worked in the field of education for over 15 years. Please see my CV for listing experience.
