Karissa’s Bio

Hello Parents!, First let me start off by telling you a little about myself. I am a college graduate from Saint Xavier University with a double major in 2008. I have my teaching credentials from Trinity Christian College. I have plenty of years of experience with children of all ages from infants to 18 years old. I have been babysitting since I was 15 years old, I have worked for the Chicago Park district for 4 consecutive years working directly with the children as a recreational leader, and I have also tutored at a learning center for 2 years. My passion is children; we have so much fun together and really enjoy one another's company. I have also supervised 15+ children at one time at the park district, and I have tutored 2+ students at one time at the learning center. I have a reliable car with great insurance and a clean driving record. I have STELLAR references!!!

Karissa is a great sitter and her daughter is a joy! She easily handled her daughter and 3 children who are 5, 3, and 1. She jumped right in and entertained the kids. She sang, read, and played with the kids. She was not afraid to get on the floor to play with the kids. She is so respectful, reliable, dependable, on time, caring, and loving with not only her daughter, but the kids she watches as well. My kids wake up every morning after Karissa watches them asking if she can come over again and play. I would highly recommend her.

Karissa currently watches my 2 year old daughter and she loves going there. Karissa is very friendly, patient, and flexible. Her home is filled with toys and she also works with the children on reading, talking, and sharing. You'll love her!

Karissa is just by far amazing! Any time I need a sitter she is the first one I calll. My kids reach for her over me, heart breaking at times but very comforting knowing they love her so much! She goes above and beyond what is asked of her from doing cleaning and cooking that was never stated in the job listing nor did I ever ask her to do it. Her daughter are just a joy to be around as well. Well behaved and very polite. Her ability to handle lots of kids at once just amazes me!

Karissa watched my two kids at her house as well with some other kids and her three children. She is definitely an amazing person. My children were never crying when I picked them up. I never heard yelling coming from her house, the kids were always loud and screaming playing and it never bothered her. She lets kids be kids and has the patience of Michelle Duggar. She is a Godsend! She worked with my ever changing schedule. I would highly recommend her and you would be lucky to have her watch your kids.

Karissa is available on short notice and always has an open and inviting house. Her kids love playing with other kids. She has been watching my kids since the oldest was 3 months (he is now 6). She takes them out, plays with them, and really engages. My kids love going to her house and being around her and her family.
