Welcome Families!My name is Jodene and I am so excited to be a part of the amazing team at St. Gianna.I have been happily married for 20 years and I am blessed to be a busy mom of three wonderful children ages 12, 15 & 17 and most often you will find me at the rink or at dance competitions cheering them on enthusiastically from the sidelines.Prior to joining A Child First OOSC, I was a nursing assistant in intensive care, then once I had my family I ran a private dayhome with a before and after school care program for 15 years and I loved every minute of it!I have a genuine passion for working with children of all ages and I am grateful to have the opportunity to spend the year ahead with your children.  I find early childhood education extremely rewarding and I enjoy watching the children grow and discover while learning and developing their skills and I truly love watching them build friendships amongst their peers.  I feel laughter, kindness and a positive environment makes for the most successful learning experience.I am looking forward to creating wonderful relationships with each and every child and their families this year!Ms. Jodene
