Shannon’s Bio

Hello, I have been around children all my life. I am the oldest of 6 children and help my single mother raise my younger siblings. I did a lot of baby sitting for many of my moms friends and family. I have 3 children of my own 20, 13 and 12. When my 20 year old was about 2 I started doing nanny jobs. It was a win win, I could bring my son to work with me and also make money doing something I truly love and enjoy. I worked for 2 different families until my son was 4 and then I decided to go back to school. While I attended College at St. Catherine's, Jesse my son went to preschool near by. Before I knew it I was working at the preschool before and after my classes. I had my own class of preschoolers for which I had to right up class schedules and arts and craft activities. I enjoyed this work a lot. After awhile I was asked how I would feel taking on the after school program with the school age kids. I said yes right away and started making daily plans for them and also helped some of them work on there homework. I enjoyed my time with these children all of them but I took a leave of absents due to pregnancy and did not return. I had my two younger children back to back and spent time raising my family during the day and worked as a machinist at night. I continued to work in the machining field for many years and then I got burnt out. I still had a love to work with kids. I volunteered at my children s schools and then became my children's aunts nanny of her two young children ages 6 months and 18 months old. I enjoyed playing, reading, making meals and providing all the love and care that their mother would have provided if she was there. I worked there a year and do to family conflicts my job stopped. I would start working at 7 AM and work until 6 sometimes 7 PM. I was suppose to be done at 6 PM at the latest, but that was not the case. By the time I got home I only had maybe an hour or two with my own kids and it was bedtime. The pay was 200 dollars a week and I would be there 12 hour days on a regular basis. It just was not working out the way we agreed it would. I have been CPR Certified, I just need to renew it. I went through CPR Training and First Aid especially aimed at children. I enjoy doing arts and crafts, playing games, playing cars,dolls,or any other toy games kids enjoy. I enjoy reading books, putting on puppet shows or any other activities that children enjoy. I also prepare meals and do house cleaning when needed.
