I am DeAnn Jones, an active member of Stanwood. I have been teaching preschool for 12 years. I also volunteer in the Kindergarten classroom at Cedarhome and Twin City Elementary schools. I teach early childhood education classes for Purdue University Global, Purdue's online degree program. This combination of teaching both young children and college students helps me keep my skills up-to-date as I teach research-based teaching methods that I also use in my own preschool. I love teaching children and watching them grow into emotionally intelligent, healthy, happy and helpful children who love learning and are prepared for Kindergarten!
Social/emotional skills are important during childhood so children can grow to be adults who get along with co-workers and others in their world.
