Getting to Know Ms. Jen

This month we’re getting to know a little more about Ms. Jen, who was recently promoted to Assistant Director after being a Co-Teacher in the Preschool 2 classroom.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read, although most of my “spare” time is spent taking my kids to all their different activities they do.

Why did you choose this career?

I’ve always wanted to work with children. I have my degree in Elementary Ed, but fell in love with my Preschoolers when I started and have been here ever since.

Tell us about a favorite teaching moment or time with a child…

My favorite moments are when the kids are helping/teaching each other something we have been working on. Now that I am not in a classroom, I really enjoy going into a class, getting hugs and talking with the kids.

Favorite place you’ve been and why?

I loved my trip to Poland and Germany, but my favorite place has to be at the beach (preferably Outer Banks).

Best advice for parents:

Parenting is not a contest. Stop comparing yourself to other parents. Just do your best and love your kids and know you aren’t perfect. You kids will love you no matter what.

Thank you Ms. Jen!
