All About Ms. Jeana
All About Ms. Jeana
I want to share a little about myself so you can get to know me better.
This will be my eleventh year teaching, all of which have been in the Higley School District! I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelors degree in Special Education. I also have a Masters Degree from Arizona State in Early Childhood Curriculum and Instruction. In addition to this, I have an Early Childhood Endorsement and a Structured English Immersion Endorsement on my teaching certificate. I love to learn and am always looking for new classes to take to keep up with current research and trends in early childhood. I have also spent the past fourteen years doing home therapy as a habilitation and respite provider for children on the autism spectrum.
I wanted to be a teacher for as long as I remember. While I was going to school I worked in a variety of classrooms as an instructional assistant with a varying age of students. When I was assigned to a preschool classroom I fell in love with the age and could not imagine being anywhere else. Preschool is my passion and I love being a part of the early intervention process, which is so crucial to the development of young children.
On a more personal note, my husband and I welcomed a baby girl to our family in December 2015. We also have a 5 year old Chihuahua mix puppy. She is still figuring out her new place in the family since she isn't an "only child" anymore. When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family. I live in Gilbert with my husband and we are fortunate to have most of our extended family in the valley. I love gardening, playing board games, and all things LEGO! I love shopping at Target, Ross, and JoAnn Craft Store. If they don't have what I'm looking for Amazon is my go to place for online ordering. :)
