Shannon’s Bio

Hi, my name is Shannon and I am currently a senior at LSU majoring in History and minoring in Sociology. I have plans to graduate in December and move back home to the Bay Area after that. After I graduate and spend some time at home I'm hoping to teach English abroad. I'm currently CPR certified for infants and children and have my first aid training certification.

I have two younger sisters (currently aged 16 and 18) and have been babysitting them since I was 12 years old. I was always a helpful hand to my parents while my sisters were younger so I learned a lot about child care growing up from my parents and my own nannies. I began as a mother's helper when I was about 10 with a family in my neighborhood with a boy and a girl between ages 2-4. I progressed with that family to full time babysitting and learned a lot through my experiences babysitting with them. Because I had two younger sisters, I spent a lot of time babysitting them when my parents went out and gained a lot of experience babysitting for their friends' families as well.

Through middle school and high school I babysat on the weekends and mainly looked after toddlers to school aged children. After I graduated High School, I was a nanny for a 3 year old and a 15 month old for part of the summer. After that, I was a nanny for 3 years for two pre-teen/teenagers while I attended Foothill Community College; I was also a nanny for a 1st grader for a year and half and occasionally watched after his little 3 year old sister when she was not in daycare.

I love kids and am interested in teaching Kindergarten or First grade. When babysitting or nannying, I usually bring the kids to the park and play with them there, take them on trips to museums or other fun outings, and do things at home like arts and crafts, playing with toys and dolls, and building things like forts. For older children I have no problem driving them around to activities and picking them up from school and helping with homework.
