My name is Shaymah and I have experience working with children for around 11 years. I started teaching as a weekend school teacher at 15 years old for some SSL hours at my local elementary school and graduated to become a lead teacher in a few after-school programs in the DCPS system. I eventually became a literacy interventionist through Americorps, where I gained my well-rounded knowledge of what it means to work with kids of different ages and life experiences. I have organic retail and dining management experience, as well! I'm currently in school to be a wedding planner to explore my possibilities. If you're looking for a detail-oriented nanny (who also happens to have experience raising her three younger siblings since they were babies), I'm the one!

We are in between Au pairs and Shaymah helped us during a work week when we didn't have childcare. From the moment she walked in the door, she was incredibly helpful. She has the perfect mix of kindness and firmness that my four-year-olds really respond to. She is skilled with children and played organized games with them, facilitated free play, did arts and crafts, gave them baths, fed them, helped with their letter skills, and took them to the playground. The girls love her. I will definitely be contacting Shaymah for future jobs.
