Meet Sharissa

I currently work full time as an assistant educator and speech therapy aide at a school for children with special needs. The classes I work in provide educational, speech, and motor services for children with all different types of special needs. I also run summer camp for children with special needs.
I am also a part-time nanny for two boys. The youngest has a diagnosis of autism. Because of the work that I do, I often babysit for families that have children who have graduated from the school I work at. I love my work and I especially love being able to babysit for...

I currently work full time as an assistant educator and speech therapy aide at a school for children with special needs. The classes I work in provide educational, speech, and motor services for children with all different types of special needs. I also run summer camp for children with special needs.
I am also a part-time nanny for two boys. The youngest has a diagnosis of autism. Because of the work that I do, I often babysit for families that have children who have graduated from the school I work at. I love my work and I especially love being able to babysit for families with both typically developing children and children with special needs. Children have been drawn to me my entire life and I began babysitting at age 12. My mother was a pediatric home nurse for many years and would often bring me with her on the nights that she cared for children. I believe that's where my interest in working with children with special needs began.
I studied American Sign Language for two years in high school because I wanted to have that skill, knowing that I wanted to work with children with hearing impairments and speech delays in the future.
