Shannon S. - Seeking Work in Flushing

I have been watching my siblings, neighbors, cousins and professor's children for as long as I can remember. I have changed diapers, helped potty train, helped with homework, sat in on recitals, went to baseballs games, made meals and generally cared for every child I have encountered. I have experience teaching everyday subjects through theater games and can teach Spanish. I don't quite understand but children are attracted to me, when out I am always getting smiles from even the shyest kids or causing a baby to stop crying. I hope to help you be able to live your life to the fullest, going on dates or having a few hours off.

In the past, I worked with two separate families for over 5 years. I worked with the first family for 6 years, absolutely enjoying taking care of their child and watching him grow from a little toddler to an energetic 10 year old boy. Afterwards, I began to work with the second family, which I stayed for over 7 years. I cared for their younger son, whom was 6 at the time, up until he became 18 years old and began going to college. I absolutely enjoyed caring for the two boys and their siblings, as well as learning about the family.
