Our Staff 

Hello! I am Ms. Janet, lead toddler teacher. I have been working at Ja'Duke for 7 years and have 17 years of experience in childcare and early education.  It is wonderful to be a part of the Ja'Duke Preschool team and I feel that the arts are such an essential piece of a child's learning process.  One of the best ways to engage children is by making it fun and sparking their imagination and creativity.  I feel fortunate to be in such a rich and diverse place where children acquire confidence and skills and become secure individuals who love to learn. 

Hello!  My name is Ms. Jenn.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Ja'Duke team as an EEC certified teacher.  I have been teaching for one year and am currently continuing my education to gain my lead teacher certification.  I believe that every child brings a unique outlook to our classroom and I am privileged to be a part of their journey of lifelong learning.

Hello, My Name is Emilie Senser I'm a lead teacher here at Ja’Duke Preschool. I have been working for Ja’Duke Preschool for 6 years now. I went to Greenfield Community College where I got my degree in Early Childhood Education. I love working with the kiddos and teaching them new and fun things!

Hi There!!  I am Ms. Amber the Certified Director here at Ja'Duke Preschool.  I have been in the field for 14 years now, and have been right here since we started putting up the walls.  I love that we get to expose all of our little friends to the arts everyday as it is a great way to make learning exciting and fun.  My favorite thing about ECE is watching children learn and grow throughout their younger years and here I am even lucky enough to see lots of the preschool alumni coming back for evening classes and performances.  We have a true sense of community here at Ja'Duke and a big happy family feeling right when you walk in the door!
