Hi, I'm Ms. Jessica, the new teacher in the Green (Pre-k)  Room. I would love to tell you a little bit about myself. I am 31 years old and I am from Quitman, Arkansas. I have been married to my husband Paul for a little over 10 years. I am currently enrolled in online college to finish my CDA (Child Development Associates) credential. I started helping out part time at an in-home child care center at 16 and loved it. Over the years I have been part of several learning programs in our local area. I have taught in daycare and preschool, as well as spending a couple of years in public schools. I have volunteered as a first responder and firefighter, a 4-H leader, a girl scout leader and have been a part of Cleburne County Fair for the past several seasons. I would like you all to know that I love working in Pre-K! I truly have a passion for teaching and enjoy watching our children learn new things. I want to see all children succeed in Preschool and in life. I am glad to have the opportunity to teach at Cleburne Kidz and to watch them learn and grow!
