Meet Shannon

  • Comfortable with pets

My name is Shannon and I am a full-time student studying Psychology with a concentration in ABA, and applying to grad schools for a Master's degree in Behavior Analysis. I grew up with three younger siblings and I have always been around children; in a group, I'm often described as the "care-taker/mother figure." One of my siblings has Down Syndrome so I have plenty of experience working with individuals with special needs. I have been watching children since I was ten, I started off as a "mother's helper" and continued to nanny/babysit until I started working as a behavior therapist working for autism service companies for the last 3 years. From those jobs, I've learned a lot of information and techniques on how to motivate kiddos and shape problem behaviors. I plan to continue to pursue a career where I'll be working with children. I love to be active, creative, Read more fun, and attentive to care and safety. I adore children and animals, so I'd be very happy and comfortable in a home with both. I spent most of my childhood playing outside, making up games with my siblings so I'm a strong advocate for giving children the time to get their energy out appropriately outdoors. Some of my favorite activities to do with kids are board games, art (painting/drawing/clay/play-doh), cooking/baking, any outdoor game, imaginative games, making school work and learning life skills(making beds/breakfast/tying shoes, etc.) fun. Summary: Experience: 11+ years, ages 0-16 Experience providing care for children w/ special needs: 8 years Comfortable babysitting: up to 4 children, possibly more if there are playdates, family visiting, and animals Availability: Pretty flexible, not available early Monday afternoon or Friday early morning due to class schedule, but that is subject to change because of COVID. Time: looking for 20+ hours/week Pay: Minimum $20/hr, subject to change by # of children Certifications: Safety Care Training, willing to renew CPR and first aid certifications if asked for/wanted. Transportation: have car insurance for 5 seater sedan, comfortable transporting children to and from school/activities/play dates
