Meet Susan

  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I'm a 50-year-old mom with a lot of energy and three kids of my own. I've been a foster parent for almost 25 years and adopted a sibling group of three through the foster care system, in addition to providing a temporary home to many other children along the way. My youngest child is now 18, and my other two no longer live at home, so I am looking for part-time, flexible employment. I love children, so going back to the job I started as an 11-year-old girl is what I'm finding myself wanting to do now! I've been a Girl Scout leader since 2000. I'm bilingual (Spanish/English). I am a very active person who loves a challenge and I enjoy playing with kids as much as I ever have! I enjoy children of all ages, from newborns through tweens. I'm very comfortable with children with special needs. I'm happy Read more to provide transportation to enrichment activities, playgrounds/parks, or wherever they may need to go.
