ECC Curriculum Coordinator
My name is Lisa Jackey and I am the Curriculum Coordinator. I have been working within the field of Early Childhood Education over 18 years now, although I have been engulfed in education since I was a child. You can say education runs in my blood! My mother is a Director for Curriculum and Instruction for a public school district in New Jersey. I began my Early Childhood experience as a classroom teacher and have spent the last ten years within administration. Along the way, I have also taken part in some very pertinent research involving the quality of early childhood environments at the University of Oklahoma.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Child Development at the University of Oklahoma. At the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, I completed my Master’s degree in Health Administration and Supervision. Most recently, I am in the process of finishing up my Doctorate of Education in Early Childhood Education at the University of North Texas. I have completed all of my coursework and am writing my dissertation. My dissertation topic is Promoting Healthy Mental Health through Social Emotional Development in Young Children.
I love training and the development of classroom environments. My favorite part of early childhood is the relationships that are developed throughout the building . . . children, families, and staff. I look forward to becoming a part of your existing J family.
In addition to my education, I am a single mother of four beautiful children. Mecca is five years old and is a Kindergartener in South Arlington, where I live. Alisa is four years old and Elijah is three years old and they both attend the J Early Childhood Center. I am equally excited for them as I am for myself to be a part of the J Early Childhood Center family!! My newest little addition is Miss Myracle.
Feel free to stop by the Preschool to meet me anytime! I look forward to meeting you!
