Genesis Center welcomes Jody S.W. Bernard as the new state pre-kindergarten teacher in our Early Learning Center. Jody brings with her over thirty years of experience as a lead teacher for Head Start.
Jody graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Human Development, Counseling and Family Studies and a concentration in Early Childhood Education. She received her Rhode Island Teaching Certification and spent her career as lead teacher for the Head Start Program serving Providence and Blackstone Valley.
As pre-K teacher, Jody looks forward to building a strong home/school connection with the families at Genesis and establishing a community of learners, where each child’s talents can shine.
“I am excited to take my skills, education and certification and put them to use at Genesis Center. I am well organized, know how to multitask and most of all, I enjoy working with children,” Jody said.
