Mercedes’s Bio

Dear parents,

My name is Mercedes. I’m from Spain who have lived in the US since 2000. I graduated with a psychology degree from Loyola University Chicago, where I took several classes on child development and became fascinated by it. Actually I’m getting my master degree in counseling from National Louis University. I’m currently looking for occasional or part time jobs in babysitting anywhere in the west suburbs.

I love working with children! I come from a big family and I’ve grown up taking care of my youngest cousins, mostly 2-5 year olds. I fed them, bathed them, and put them to bed. My last 2 years in college, I was a part-time babysitter for a girl of 6 and a boy of 8. I picked them up from school, helped them with their homework, and played with them. Actually I babysit several children from several suburbs.This past 2 years I’ve been drawn back to the world of babysitting because I missed children!

I’m a kid at heart. I’m a fan of Legos and blocks, and dolls, and I love playing with action figures, puzzles and read books. I also love cooking, especially food from other countries, as well as baking cookies and cupcakes with the kids. I also like to spend time outdoors, play in the park, go to museums and sports. I’m a very healthy person and I don’t smoke or drink. I’ve had my driver’s license for over 15 years, I have a clean record, and never had an accident.

I would define myself as educated, patient, organized, friendly and responsible. My dream is to go to become clinical counseling for children. Animals are one of my passions so I would be glad to care for your pets as well if you have any.

Thank you for reading this and I hope to hear from you.

Mercedes has been working for me for just under a year. She is fabulous with the children and is extremely responsible. She is energetic as well as loving with the children. She has taken care of several children from our daycare at their own homes after hours. The parents love her. If you are looking for more than just a babysitter, then I would highly recommend Mercedes.
