Marcy’s Bio

I am available for over-nights, date nights and weekends but I am working mon-fri 8-5 or 6.
I LOVE kids! I am most proud of my accomplishments as a single mother; my daughter graduated from U of I! I had her at 23 so I am still very youthful! I am fun Auntie Marcy to 14 nieces and nephews, 7 of which currently range in age from 9-15. I have worked at a pre-school in college and have had many other babysitting/FT nanny jobs throughout the years. Of the families I currently occasionally sit for, two have children with special needs. (One boy has severe Down Syndrome and in another family of three, one boy has ADHD.) I am extremely patient as you may have guessed. I speak proper English, use manners, I'm consistant, reliable and very fun! I would prefer a long term situation not just summer...but again I would consider all options as I was abruptly let go do to an unfortunate job loss on the part of one parent. 
I drive a safe reliable 2012 car. I have a clean driving record. I'm a strong swimmer. I love music, dance, arts & crafts and can play dinosaurs as well as princess on any given day. I'm comfortable with basic homework help. Fine with pets. Non-smoker/non-drinker. No criminal record or tickets. Great local & current references. I'm from Chicago and have a great support of friends and family to keep me happy and healthy when I'm not with your kids!
