Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Jessica Schoenburg, and this is my first year at Cherokee Heights. I feel so happy to be apart of this school community and look forward to many more years getting to know all the children learning with us.
I have been teaching either kindergarten or first grade for the past 9 years in both Milwaukee and the Twin cities. I grew up in Wisconsin and went to UW-Milwaukee for my BA in early childhood education. I am now taking Montessori continuing education with the Midwest Montessori Teaching Center in Evanston, IL. I have also taken a graduate course in Ancient Asian cultures and history.
I love this age group, and especially love the Montessori approach to learning. Everything is built into this model, from guiding children to resolve conflicts peacefully, to learning concrete methods to divide and subtract.
I have two young children, Julian is 4 years old and Leo will be 2 in February. They both go to a home pre-school here in Saint Paul. My husband is a Web Developer/UX Specialist at a local company, (NOVU), offering health options for large companies. I love traveling with my family by train, spending time outside, gardening and reading.
