Hi! My name is Shannon and I am currently a single mom of an 11 yr old girl and an 18 yr old girl living away at college. I have babysat one child up to six children at one time during my high school years up to present; and have also taken care of the elderly as a CNA/ CHHA. Unfortunately after I got married at 23 yrs old I eventually became a stay at home mom. Which I really love! But I kind of let my CPR certificate lapse etc. But I still have always loved children and had no problem following parents instructions. Before I got married I was a nanny for a really great family nearby with three rambunctious children who are now adults some with their own children now!( so weird! Lol) I am responsible, energetic for the right situations but I am not “professional “ Read more as I am not certified in CPR which I hope to rectify soon being a parent myself. Since being certified in the past the motions don’t leave you. I am a 2010 Graduate of MWCC in Gardner, MA and I have an Associate Degree in Science/ Human Services. But because your child will be mostly sleeping I will be quiet as I would watch tv on low volume and or read. Making sure your child is safe and content. If you think I may be a fit feel free to contact me as I would love to help you out! Thanks for your time.😀 Shannon Sanborn *for night fill ins or occasional I can adjust my schedule but I don’t want my daughter home alone on overnights- so I would ask permission if she can sleep on the couch until we had leave or sleep over if it’s an over night situation.*
