HI! My name is Vanessa M. Jara, and I’m excited to be starting my third year here at Temple Beth Emet, as the school’s pre-K Teacher in the Lions room! I have been in the field of education for over 15 years, taught Kindergarten for a few years, and hold a Master’s Degree in Education, a Bachelor’s degree in Child Development, and have both, a Multiple subjects credentials and Site Supervisor permit for the state of Californias. I absolutely love what I do and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I am Mommy to a seven-year-old son whom I am currently homeschooling, so when I’m not at work, you can easily find me at home teaching him or sleeping. I love anything DIY and enjoy acrylic painting on canvas shoes for friends and family. Feel free to stop by and say hi and thank you for reading.
