My name is Maggie and I would love to become your nanny or babysitter! I am very friendly, fun, dependable, and caring. I get along with everyone, and I know that I would be the perfect person to help your family. I’m 24 years old and from Lockport, a southwest suburb of Chicago. In 2010 I graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University with a degree in Percussion Performance, but I also like to play piano, recorder, handbells and sing. I love kids and have been teaching music for many years, at school and at church.
I studied German for 4 years and after living in Germany for a year as an au pair, am now fluent. I would love to be able to bring this skill with me and help your kids learn a new language. My time in Germany was really exciting and life-changing, as that was when I realized that I wanted to make nannying my career. I love spending time with, playing with, and taking care of kids. In my spare time I enjoy being outside, hiking, playing tennis, and just exploring. I am a very happy person, a great listener, and just like to make life as much fun as possible.
I am definitely a kid at heart, which is why I get along with them so well, but I am also responsible and know when it is time to stop playing and start working (usually I can find a way to combine both, though). I love to travel and have been to many countries, and I would love to share my experiences (and eclectic cooking knowledge) with your family!
I would be able to start immediately, and have experience with all sorts of animals. I live in the southwest suburbs but would be willing to travel to Chicago. I have my own car and a spotless driving record. I would love to meet your family to see if we're a great match.
I hope to hear from you soon!
