My name is Jess Divine, you can call me Miss Divine, I am the director of Iron and Pine Preschool.
I have worked in the early education field for the past seven years in various capacities: working with children ranging in age from 4 weeks old to six years old. My experience ranges from private care, to working as the Bilingual interpreter/lead infant toddler/preschool teacher for an Early Head Start/Head Start program, to our very own local Waldorf K-8th in their Waldorf preschool.
I learned early on in my professional life that I was passionate about childhood education, and in looking at the various teaching philosophies, it became very clear to me that the Waldorf philosophy was the one that resonated with my heart and my work as an educator/director. The Waldorf approach to education resonates deeply with me as both a teacher and person. I am a LifeWays student, Waldorf Teacher Education Program for Early Education, and I will be continuing my Waldorf Teacher training in August of 2020. While experience is always the best teacher, I am still very active in Early Childhood Education and Waldorf educational programs. I am always looking for new ways to improve myself, my program, and expand upon my knowledge of early education by attending seminars, workshops, and pursuing my higher education.
I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to be a teacher to your child during this incredible period of growth in their lives. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child as we play and learn together.
