Ms. Jacquelyn

Critical Reading and Writing Teacher

I fell in love with teaching in 1987 and I have been teaching ever since. Beginning with preschool, I have taught students on each grade level all the way through high school. Additionally, for many years I was a supervisor and also a program director for various Children's Development Programs. I hold a certificate for life coaching and counseling, a bachelor's degree in psychology, a teaching credential for multiple subjects, and a doctorate in metaphysical sciences. I believe that it takes a village to raise a child. Building children's self-confidence is one of the keys to success. It is of the utmost importance to teach to the whole child, meaning on every level, such as intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
