MEET THE TEAM TEACHERS
Jenny began working as a paraprofessional in PRE-K ESE when she was 18 years old. She began her journey as a co-teacher in a Pre-K classroom. It is there where Jenny was first introduced to Conscious Discipline®. She then went on to work at PRIDE (Prekindergarten Instruction in a Diagnostic Environment) a demonstration classroom out of the PRE-E ESE district office. After having her son TJ, she decided to leave the classroom so she could stay home with him full time with all of the love and experiences she had been providing for so many children throughout the years. The time came for TJ to move on to Kindergarten. Jenny knew this was her time to give back to other children and instill in them all that she had done for her own child. Jenny began working alongside Mindy in 2009 at the first Grow With Us location where she helped grow the program into its first enrichment class. She has contributed to the growth of Grow With Us and has become an instrumental part of our Team. In addition to teaching in the classroom, she helps train new teachers, assists in curriculum development, and helps teach in the Parent Child Classes. She is thrilled to continue to be a part of Our School Family and looks forward to connecting and creating lasting memories with all of the families to last a lifetime.
Melissa has been teaching at Grow With Us Academy since the 2015-2016 school year. She graduated from Miami Dade College, where she earned her credentials in Early Childhood Education, and continues her education there as she works towards her Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. What excites Melissa most about working with the children in her care ius their boundless energy, optimism, and enthusiasm. She has a two-year-old son who attends Grow With Us Academy, and has noticed the difference Conscious Discipline has made in her life and her relationships with others.
Sasha graduated from Robert Morgan Educational Center where she received her credentials to be a pre-school teacher. She has prior experience as a Teacher’s Assistant at Alexander Montessori. Learning about Conscious Discipline was the deciding factor for her to switch schools. She will be attending Miami-Dade college to receive her bachelor’s degree in Education and a minor in Psychology. In her free time she loves to read, plant succulents, meditate, and spend time with loved ones.
