Meet Tanneal

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

My name is Tanneal Cheshire. I’m a 20 year-old student currently finishing up my gap year, which marks my transition from Stephens College to Mizzou, where I’ll be studying education. I’m the oldest of eight siblings, and while the younger four children were just entering school my mom was in college at Central Methodist in Fayette, MO. Since she and my dad both had full time jobs at the time, most of the childcare duties fell to me. I am experienced and readlily prepared for dirty diapers, temper tantrums, teething, learning to read, and every other unique task that comes with caring for children of any age. I’m wonderful at reading books aloud, and I’m very engaged when playing with children. I have a little bit of experience tutoring, and my strongest subjects are English and math. In my opinion, cell phones are only to be used during emergencies or Read more when children are asleep and there is no cleaning left to be done. I want to be a sitter/nanny because I love children, and I know that many parents are forced to work long hours so they need childcare. I am a friendly, professional, reliable person and I hope that I can meet your needs as a parent. Children need a lot of attention and they need to be shown that there are other things to do than electronic entertainment. I want to expand your child’s daily activities to include hobbies like art and music, exercise through sports or outdoor games, and pastimes like card games or board games when the weather is dismal. Let me make your life a little easier! I have spent every summer since 2014 lifeguarding, and my StarGuard certifications are still current including first aid, CPR, and emergency oxygen. From April 2014-August 2015 I worked on the childcare staff at the YMCA in Boonville, MO both as a summer camp counselor and as a babysitter for children whose parents were working out or coaching classes. I’ve taught swimming lessons to children as young as two and as old as fifteen during my time at the YMCA and working at the City of Columbia during the summer of 2017. I’m more than happy to provide care for your pets and plants as well! Please let me know if there are pets in your household so that I can arrive armed with treats and Claritin, as I absolutely love pets but am mildly allergic to both dogs and cats. I have a 2 year-old Great Pyrenees mix.
