Suzzan's Description

I am a mature aged woman and have 2 adult daughters who live on the Sunshine Coast. I totally enjoyed motherhood and am happy to be of help to other parents in achieving a suitable family/work balance.
I have a Diploma of Teaching Primary & Special Schools - I specialised in Vision Impairment and for 11 years (1999 - 2010)worked with children who were blind/vision impaired/ASD/multiply impaired; aged 0 - 18 years.
Back in my early 20s (before I had my own children) I worked as a governess to a 6 year old boy on a sheep station near Charleville for 1 year. I also lived in Canada and worked as a nanny for 3 years. The children ranged in age from 3 mths. - 7 yrs. old. I have some excellent references available.
I enjoy helping children learn to their developmental level, reading, singing, playing, park, kindergym, music group, playgroup etc. I think my strong point is empathy and being able to connect with the child of any age. I am kind and patient, but will be firm about things like mutual respect, politeness, kindness. I am happy to clean up after the children and do light housework/meal prep.
I moved from Toowoomba to Buderim in August 2010 for a sea change and a change from the hectic pace of working as an Advisory Visiting Teacher for Ed. Qld.
Since 2011, for several years, I worked part-time/casual for 2 local nanny agencies (children aged 2mths - 12 yrs old), and for the last couple of years have worked directly with families.
Since 2011, I have also worked as a carer for a man who is blind and autistic.
I have also enjoyed working as a tutor for a home schooling family for one year.
I hold a current first aide certificate and drive a reliable RAV 4.
My yellow and blue cards have recently (last week) expired and I am in process of renewing.
