Dana’s Bio

I love children! I come from a large family and have always proven to be responsible and reliable. I have thoroughly enjoyed my many years of child care experience for families back home in California. I have had the privilege of caring for children of all ages with various personalities and continue to love every single one of them!

I obtained a degree in Applied Linguistics in 2009. In 2010 I traveled to Thailand for an internship where one of my many responsibilities included teaching English as a second language to children.

I hope to one day work in Africa or Asia with children as an English teacher. I have experience working with orphans in foreign countries and I strongly believe that all children deserve unconditional love and care.

I have been babysitting for several different families in Chicago for the last six years, and I tutor ESL as well. Becoming your child's sitter would be considered a privilege in my eyes. I look forward to providing them with the attention and love they deserve. Thank you for your interest!
