  About Me
 
Hello,

My name is Lisa, I am 27 years old and I have recently graduated from my M. Ed. degree (specialization in ESL and teaching Spanish) at the University of Vienna, Austria. I am currently on a one year Working Holiday visa in Canada trying to combine getting to know this beautiful country with casual work.

Growing up with five brothers in the idyllic Austrian countryside I have always been passionate about both children and the outdoors. After finishing High School I moved to the beautiful island of Mallorca, Spain, where I worked as a live-in nanny for one year, caring for a 9-month-old as well as an 8-year-old. I still go back to my Spanish host family at least once a year for a visit and I consider myself very lucky that we treat each other like family now. Throughout the past years, while studying in Vienna, I gained plenty of experience casually working as a nanny as well. For example, I accompanied a nice Austrian family on their ski holiday in the mountains twice, taking care of their 3-year-old son and their 12-year-old daughter which was a lot of fun.

I am a reliable, educated and enthusiastic young professional who enjoys entertaining kids of all ages. I love to draw, sing, play the guitar, bake cookies, and of course spend time outside with the children I watch. I am active, love the outdoors, and believe that spending time in the fresh air is vital to a happy childhood. I am furthermore able to multi-task and used to doing light household chores and cooking while supervising children - although the children's needs always come first of course. As a teacher to be I can also provide help with homework if necessary, or introduce the German and/or Spanish language to the kids in a fun way.

If you are looking for a responsible, positive and fun babysitter for your children, just let me know. I'd love to meet you and your family.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
2 years experience, 0 references
I worked as a live-in nanny/au-pair in Spain for one year, taking care of a 9-month-old and a very active 8-year-old, while helping in the household at the same time (general cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, light cooking, etc. ). During my degree at the University of Vienna I casually worked as a babysitter, for example, I took a 6-month-old out for walks in her stroller and accompanied an Austrian family to their ski holidays twice for about 10 days each time, spending time with their 3-year-old while the family was out skiing as well as playing with their 12-year-old when she came back from her outdoor activities. After those two holidays, whenever the parents needed a babysitter back in Vienna, they would also call me to watch their kids as well as the kid's friends.

After completing High School in Austria and taking a year off to be a live-in nanny in Spain I decided to combine my passion for children and languages in my future career. I obtained a M.
