Meet our Trustworthy Turtles Teacher:

Lead Teacher: Ms. Jessi

My name is Jessi. I am the Lead Teacher in the Trustworthy Turtles Classroom!

Ever since I was in preschool, my dream was to become a preschool teacher. I recently graduated from Eastern Gateway Community college with an Associate’s degree in Teaching. I began working for Ionia Public Schools and have been there for the last four years. Over the last two years I was a paraprofessional in a Kinderstart preschool classroom.


I am excited to teach your child and help them grow!
