I am retiring soon as an Oral Language Therapist from North Lamar ISD. I have recently “serviced” the kinder to 5th grade students and find it so very rewarding. I owned a gift store in Nisswa, MN. (The Merchant of Nisswa) for 18 years. For 7 years I worked for the Brainerd, MN. School district as a Speech Therapist in the Head start program and with 7th-12th grade students. When my three sons were young, I had the privilege of being a-stay-at-home Mom. I have always been a very active volunteer for church, school and neighborhood. The most rewarding volunteer work was being the auction chair for a yearlong fundraiser for the private Catholic military boy’s school, St. Thomas Academy in St. Paul MN.
Fortunately for me when I married, we were given a lovely lake home on the north shore of Pelican Lake near Pequot Lake, MN. We also had a home in Forest Haven in Bloomington MN. After my divorce of a 25 year marriage I moved to my home town of Paris Texas. My parents were in need of caregiver help. I have worked full-time during the past 19 years. I am looking forward to retirement but would enjoy traveling and sitting your animals, plants and home. I have traveled extensively so flying to new places is easy enough for me. Renting a car and my smart phone will enable me to arrive at your home safely and on time.
My life has afforded me many beautiful homes. I recently sold my beautiful 100 year old home on Paris’ Historical District Church Street. I want to assure you I am aware of how to respect your fine home and contents. Unfortunately during the years, I have had careless individuals leave stains & glass rings on my furniture, break personal treasures, and other unfortunate experiences. I will treat your home and pets with respect, love and care. I have a small quiet home on a private, gated community on Oddfellow’s Lake that I can easily leave on a moment’s notice. Always being so active, I don’t want to slow down so look forward to a visit in your area. I enjoy reading, TV, internet and walking. Will be delighted to just “nestle ‘in with your pets. My sons and their lovely families live in the Minneapolis area.
References are available and I am happy to send once I know if you prefer from work, church, friends, and neighbors - your choice. I am very neat, quite, capable and honest. I am a lifetime non- smoker or drug user. I do enjoy a glass of white wine.
On many occasions since a teenager I have had opportunities to sit for pets, water flowers, and house sit. I’ve learned to be very adaptable in others’ homes (as the caretaker). For the past two years during the summer and holidays I have taken care of a (special-needs) dog and home in Naples, Florida.
I look forward to seeing or hearing from you.. Please call or message me with any questions. My married name was Hamiltonbut I have returned to my maiden name. A teacher in Texas is required to have a background check. I do not have a criminal background or even a ticket! Please consider me for this important responsibility; I thank you in advance for your time.
