My name is Abby Jenkins and I am proudly from southern Ohio! I began teaching in 2020 and I am ecstatic that I get to learn and grow my skills as a teacher at the CLC. Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to pursue education. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Early childhood education from Ohio University Southern in 2019. While in the education program, I had the opportunity to teach and observe in 8 different classrooms. These opportunities were in grades PreK-4th, and it was during this time that I discovered my love of teaching preschool.
I believe that the role of the teacher is to make a warm and welcome classroom that makes all students feel that they are welcome, cared about, and that they are capable of anything. I believe students should be given the opportunity to explore and be creative. I believe community members and parents are a vital aspect in the learning process and we should create a team to help children be successful. I hope to provide an environment that gets students excited to learn and be at school. I am looking forward to working with your child!
