Megan’s Bio

Hi everyone! I'm fun, loving, playful, energetic, punctual, creative and a self starter. I'm a wife, step-mom, Girl Scout troop leader & full-time student working towards my small business degree. I've taken ASL classes and I am actively involved with the Deaf community, and working on improving my fluency in American Sign Language. I'm guessing you can say ASL is my passion - I study it, immerse myself in it, and most importantly - I teach it to children. I'm certified through the Signing Time Academy to teach children ASL vocab. in the hopes to give children a hands on 2nd language. But I'll explain more on that later.

Some of the things I'd be more then willing to do is:
* Teach basic skills like - ABCs, Counting etc.
* Getting dressed, tying shoes, learning to use scissors
* Potty training
* Sign Language - building communication between child and parent
* Setting up a routine around the house - reward system, homework time, bath time, bedtime
* Lots and lots of playing! Children of all ages need to be able to freely use their imagination, make tents in the bedroom with blankets, going to the park and embarking on a pirate ship, and having a tea party with all the special stuffed animals. 
* Reading, Reading, Reading. If there is one thing that I can stress to parents besides ASL, is reading with your children. Giving them a love for reading is a skill they will use for a lifetime
* Arts and crafts
I love going to parks, museums, zoos, swimming, discovering new adventures and curling up with a good book - these are things I'd love to do with your child.

I was very pleased with Megan when she babysat my 3 year old & 2 month old children. She asked a lot of great questions, so she would be able to do things the way we are used to. She seemed to have a genuine interest in my children, and was able to relate and communicate very well. I would definitely use her again and thought she displayed initiative, confidence, & knowledge which makes her great at what she does.

Megan came over to watch our 10 year old daughter and 6 week old son. She was excellent! She was on time and even got along with our dogs. Our daughter couldn’t stop talking about the things they did. Megan even taught our daughter a few things in sign language. Our son was changed for bed and well cared for when we came home. Our daughter asked the next morning when she would be coming back. -Jon and Enjoli

Megan has watched our 1 and 2 year old on several occasions and has done an outstanding job. She is a natural at teaching and communicating, using sign language as a great tool to interact and teach. We are very pleased with her work and will definitely continue to call on her when we need a sitter.

Megan watched our son Alexander during the month of April while we attended a wedding in Las Vegas. She was prompt, did a great job entertaining our son, and provided us updates on how things were going.
