After lots of dreaming and planning, I’m ready to announce my full-time move to the career I’ve been working toward for over a year…governess to the children of Portland, Oregon!
What’s a governess you ask? A governess is kind of like a nanny or babysitter, but focuses mainly on creating a home environment that fosters intellectual and artistic curiosity.
I’m an emerging writer with tons of experience teaching folklore, epic poetry, zine making, and bookbinding to Portland kids. You can trust that yours will be exploring and creating instead of watching TV during our time together.
I’ll arrive each time with age-appropriate books on history, science, folklore, art, etc. and loads of art supplies. Sometimes we’ll make zines, sometimes we’ll stage a play. Sometimes we’ll just read quietly or work on homework. And I’m always happy to serve a meal or help with bedtime.
My starting rate for one child is $15/hour. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
