Meet Our Teachers

Since 1997 I have worked as a preschool teacher in a variety of different preschool settings. These included, 4 years in a non-profit co-op preschool and 3 years in a private school, Pre-K through 8th grades. In 2007 I opened my second school, Sweet Pea Preschool, located on Harrison St. in Milwaukie. I love working in the early childhood industry. It thrills my heart to see each child’s sense of wonder, discovery and ‘can do’ attitude develop.
I have been in involved in early childhood since 2005. In 2007 I started with Sweet Pea Preschool as a toddler teacher. Over the years I worked with all ages. In 2015 I became the director and lead preschool teacher. Creating teachable moments in the classroom both academically and socially is my favorite part of my day. I find working with children is the most gratifying work I have ever done. Please schedule a tour so that I can show you around our cozy little center.
JACKIEAssistant Director
I am originally an Oregonian. In 2015 I graduated with an Associates in Early Childhood Education in Arizona. I worked 2 years as a head start teacher. In 2017, I moved back to the Milwaukie area to be closer to family. This is when I started with Sweet Pea Preschool. This is a different kind of center compared to where I have worked in the past. Sweet Pea is vested in the children and the community. You can feel and see the difference.
