I enjoy engaging children to join, teaching skills of daily living is very important structure. Enjoy reading,playing games to engage in social skills and just have fun.

We had booked Margaret to watch our son Saturday from 1-6 pm which we needed for work. We provided our address via text message at 3:28 pm on Thursday. We called and spoke with her on Thursday evening- confirming the times and the date and spoke for almost 20 minutes. She texted her address to us (not sure why) on Friday morning. On Friday at 7:28 pm we texted to confirm the sitting. We messaged her via Sitter City app on Saturday morning and texted her to confirm. We also called when she didn't respond- it went to voicemail and we left a message. She finally responded by text at 3:30 pm (2.5 hours after she was supposed to be here) that she didn't have our address. We had already texted it to her at that exact number and in the message string. Bottom line- unreliable and I don't believe that she is telling the truth. I don't recommend.
