Shannon’s Bio

Hello! My name is Shannon. I am a writer, designer and publisher with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon, and 10+ years of experience in childcare, education and mentorship. I am currently located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, IL, and would be happy to step in as a part-time or occasional babysitter for a loving family in need of childcare assistance. While I do have access to a car, ideally I would love to babysit for a family in my neighborhood a few days a week or on the weekends, while I finish writing a novel and completing a grant-writing course at DePaul (Saturdays, 1-4pm.) That said, my schedule is flexible and I'm happy to work out a time that fits both your schedule and mine.

My experience as a childcare specialist is extensive, and I'm happy to provide you with a brief resume via email. Over the last decade, I have been a fun and reliable nanny and babysitter for dozens of families, with whom I have formed lasting and meaningful relationships. Additionally, I have spent 4 years as a reading mentor for underserved youth, 5 months as a tutor, and many summers teaching children how to swim. In 2014, I spent over a year as a design and publishing intern for Alyson Beaton at Grow Studio, designing and manufacture eco-friendly and educational children's books and products. Any parents familiar with the Logan Square area may recall our line of Lille Husset dollhouses brightening up the window display at the local toy store, Play, each month. I am also the proud big sister to two little boys, both over 15 years younger than me, who live with my parents in Madison, WI, for whom I have spent many hours teaching and babysitting.

Throughout my personal and professional experience, I have maintained the belief that children excel in safe and nurturing environments, where creativity is encouraged, kindness is valued, and learning is constant. I love reading and sparking creativity in kids, and believe that fun and learning go hand-in-hand.

Please feel free to contact me through Sittercity if you believe I would be a good fit for your family. Thank you!
