  About Me
My name is Allana. I was born and raised in Northland New Zealand and moved to Vancouver Canada in August 2017. In 2018 I moved to Taiwan to teach English. My students' ages varied from 3 -to 18. I have recently moved back to Canada and I am hoping to continue my career as a children educator and carer. I believe that the position you are offering is the perfect match for me.

I have previously worked at two daycares back in New Zealand as an early childhood teacher that accommodated children aged newborn to 5 years. As an educator at these centers, I organized creative activities for children to advance their social, physical and mental development.
I am a highly driven and organized individual, independently and collaboratively. I thrive on teach and learn interaction with positive mindset and energy to any field in which I have previously worked. I would consider myself both adaptable and punctual. Teaching and caring for children is my passion, and I would love to help out and contribute to your family.

My hobbies include going to the gym, watching movies, traveling, singing, playing the guitar, and anything outdoors.

To Whom it may concern, We have had the pleasure of Allana working for us for 2 months where she looked after our three children aged four, two and one. Allana would start at 7:30 am most mornings and finish at 6 pm on most days. She was always punctual and has a very positive attitude towards her job. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed having her with them she became part of the family really. She would do breakfasts, morning and afternoon tea and lunches. On a few occasions, she had to look after kids when they were sick as well and administer medicines for fevers, etc. She also did overnights stay as well to look after them when we went away. We could not have asked for a more reliable, mature, caring and loving person to take care of our children. We will all miss her immensely but wish her well with her traveling ventures. We would have no problem recommending her to anyone to take care of their children as she is a natural with them and is totally capable. We wish you well Allana and take care. Yours sincerely Jeremy & Olivia

It is with pleasure that I write a reference for you Allana. Right from the start, Allana proved herself capable and able to manage both work and study commitments as well as later helping care for a young family of 3 young children under 5. She has maintained a quiet confidence and is able to quickly discern children's dispositions and leads. This is an intuition that will allow her to become a valuable employee in the future and passionate about children and the ways that children learn. While Allana was with us she was able to work and move freely between 2 centers. Kaitaia 'Blessings for Life' and Houhora 'Blessings for Life'. She was able to gain respect as a colleague that could be relied upon when the situation arose. She is able to work willingly, has great body language, be flexible and laugh lots. Her work ethic towards myself as an employer has been punctual, honest, hardworking, professional, adaptable and mature. As well as being part of the daily routines of 2 centers, of which 1 is new and children and families are transitioning, Allana was able to position herself in the right place at the right time and not interrupt children's play, unless it was time to do so. Allana is clear firm and kind in her approach with children, a great asset for any employer. One center has 40 children, the other 25 and Allana has been able to quickly form strong relationships with the children and give quality care for a range of children from birth to 5 years old. This is quite an accomplishment for fully registered teachers and a credit for a young woman of 17. Allana will be sadly missed by all the staff, families and children from Blessings for Life Kaitaia and Houhora and we wish her well with her adventures overseas. She will always have work here at Blessings for Life. Ther Lord Bless you immensely Allana Karen Nattrass Owner Manager Blessings for Life Kaitaia/ Houhora
