Meet Shannon

  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

My name is Shannon and I am a graduate student studying English and Foreign Language.  I have been babysitting and nannying since high school, but started seriously babysitting when I moved to New York for school.  I have au pair experience, volunteer experience as well as babysitting and nannying experience both full-time and part-time.  I absolutely adore children and enjoy their company.  I can cook, and tutor children to the best of my ability.  I speak Spanish and English.  I love all pets and have two cats myself.  I love taking the children to the park or out for an afternoon stroll, but I also love playing board games or cards.  I prefer to do educational and productive activities with the children.  I will read to babies in both Spanish in English or even help older children learn a little bit of Spanish along the way.  I am open to Read more becoming CPR certified if that is necessary!  I am very enthusiastic and upbeat and have a lot of patience which is why I love caring for children so much.  I am a very determined student who is just trying to work my way through grad school doing something I love.
