Cheryl’s Bio

I'm a mom who loves children.   I love caring for them, teaching them and watching them grow.  My adult son has grown and no longer living in my home. I have a strong sensitivity towards individuality and personal styles and  can easlily recognize that each family is unique.  Raising someone elses child is not to be taken as an opportunity to gain income is an opportunity to nuture a young persons development and creativity as they develop and grow to become active adults.  I have had an incredible opportunity throughout my younger years to work with thousands of children from all types of families and cultures.  
My hope for all children is role model strong character traits to help them develop to adult living.
I currently have a Police, Criminal and FBI background check that was taken in SEptemeber of 09. In October of 09 I become CPR and First Aid Certified. I have excellent references from people I have worked with for and know well.  I would be happy to allow you review those results and an references you need.
