Meet Shaw

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I have many years experience with infants and toddlers, caring with full attention to the child without distractions. Lots of feeding bathing, rocking, talking, playing games, taking walks, rocking to sleep and soothing with words and touch. ASD and other differently-abled and wonderfully quirky kids are wonderful. Lots of experience there, too. In addition to mothering marvelous now-grown children, I taught high school drama, Kindergarten - 8th grade art, and worked with at-risk high school youth teaching Barista job skills. I'm a professional at amusing kids on very little money, stressing water, sand, walks, outdoor fun and physical activity, and making oatmeal box instruments, macaroni art, dioramas and theatrical imaginative play. Children are bright and long to be heard so listening is something I truly enjoy with firm adult help and guidance always used. I like to help them shine, building confidence. I have reliable transportation and don't mind kid-mess Read more in the car. Lots of references, if we get to negotiations.
