Meet Jennifer

Greetings!
I started as an aide in a toddler classroom back in 1977 shortly after I got out of high school and continue to love working with children!

I obtained my ECE accreditation at Palomar College in CA, with a 4.0, and have been in the field of early childhood education (ECE) for over 30 years now. I spent over 19 of those years as a preschool teacher and director, and have also been a nanny (over six years), home-school teacher for 5-7th grade, infant-program caregiver and sick-child/infant care attendant.

Greetings!
I started as an aide in a toddler classroom back in 1977 shortly after I got out of high school and continue to love working with children!

I obtained my ECE accreditation at Palomar College in CA, with a 4.0, and have been in the field of early childhood education (ECE) for over 30 years now. I spent over 19 of those years as a preschool teacher and director, and have also been a nanny (over six years), home-school teacher for 5-7th grade, infant-program caregiver and sick-child/infant care attendant. In addition, I've worked in curriculum development and as a summer program planner. My experience includes working with kids of various special needs as well. I am so glad to have had the varied experiences throughout the years, as this has deepened my understanding of children and their developmental needs.

At this point, I am only doing part-time work. My availability (when) is still the same, however, the amount of hours at a time have decreased, as I now am dealing with Fibromyalgia. However, I hope that this will not deter you from considering me, as what I have to offer considerably outweighs my setback.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
