  About Me
 
I am a highly qualified and personable mature woman who has 30 years of experience of raising my own two children as well as working as an ESL tutor and a reading tutor with elementary school age children. I have volunteered countless hours in elementary schools and cared for many other children over the years. I love to sing in my choir. I love to be outdoors in nature. I love reading and exercise. My outlook on life is extremely positive and I love to be creative with children and help them explore whatever their interests or homework might be. I believe all children are very special with their unique personalities and I see my job as very important to providing a comfortable, safe, open, communicative and mostly fun environment. From baking cookies to playing outside on bikes etc., I guarantee you will receive the highest quality of care for your children and I will also provide other housekeeping services as you require. I look forward to hearing from you and finding out more about your specific needs.
Warm regards,
Donna Gordon
