Hello, My name is Melissa. I am currently a high school social studies teacher. I have been a babysitter since 8th grade. This ranges from after school sitter, to summer nanny, to just occasional date nights. I worked as a nanny and babysitter throughout much of college due to the flexible schedules. I am now looking for families to help out with date nights and occasional sitting as well as any school breaks. I live in Portage Park and have a car if needed. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks so much!

Melissa is wonderful with our infant boy. He lights up when she comes to sit for him. She began babysitting for him when he was 7 months old and quickly learned his routine. She's very intuitive and attentive while caring for him and we feel very lucky to have found her thru Sittercity.
