Meet Shelley

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

I LOVE working with children of all ages and abilities. I currently work for the Galesburg school district and the Knox County YMCA after school program. Before that I worked at a daycare center as the 2's TEACHER in the Chicagoland area. With the 2 year olds I planned lessons and activities for the children. I took them outside when the weather allowed me to. I also helped with potty training the 2 year olds that I cared for once they were ready. Before that I was in the infant room where the children were 6 weeks old to 2 years old. I fed, changed, put them to sleep and played with them. I worked at a park district in their preschool programs, before/after school programs and a Kindergarten class, as well for almost 6 years from 2007-2013. I worked at a Montessori school from August 2009 - April 2011 Read more working with children ages 2-6. I was a camp counselor/camp manager for about 10 years. I'm a fun, out going and lovable person who likes to meet all kinds of people. I have a niece (age 13) and nephew (age 10) who are the world to me. I love doing different things with them (in and outdoors). I DO NOT DRIVE-PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN LOOKING AT MY PROFILE. THANK YOU. (I will be walking/biking).
