JENNA - LEAD TEACHER

 Q: What year did you begin teaching at WNNS?

    A: 2017

Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

    A: My favorite book for years and years was Linnea in Monet’s Garden by Cristina Bjork (and I still love it.)

Q: What is your favorite children's book now?

    A: Lately I have been enjoying reading “Little Elliot, Big City” by Mike Curato, and I’m also a fan of Todd Parr and Mo Willems’ books.

Q: What motivates you as an educator? 

    A: I’m motivated by the excitement and wonder that three-year-olds bring to the classroom every single day. Their curiosity is infectious; it constantly broadens my own perspective and gives me a greater appreciation for the simple things in life. The greatest part of teaching, for me, is seeing a student light up as they make a connection between the classroom and their outside world. I feel so very lucky to be part of that process!
