Erica

Hello, I am Erica. I have been a member of the PleasanTime Team since 2005. I am the director and teacher of the Big Kids Club/The HIVE (Happy Imaginative Vibrant Explores) school age program. I have a Bachelors degree in Special Education from UW Whitewater. My Goal at PleasanTime is to support the community of teacher and families in fostering and environment where children can flourish.

Jazmyn

Hi! I am Jazmyn. I have been a member of PleasanTime team since 2007 and I am currently the substitute teacher and executive assistant. I enjoy every aspect of teaching and have realized in my years that they can teach us as much as we teach them. This is one of my favorite things about teaching. I believe that some of the most important skills to have when working with little children are patience, flexibility, and love.  I believe all children deserve to have a safe, educational environment to learn and grow. We strive every day to provide a lasting education in each child that comes through our center.  Knowledge is power and I recognize that the earlier it begins the better for the child. To me the most amazing thing is to see or hear one of your students apply the skills that you have taught them and see the excitement of their face.  I am proud of each child every day and I am so proud to be their teacher and to be given the opportunity to watch them grow.

 

We have a great team with incredible passion for each individual child. I feel very proud and lucky to be part of such a great group of teachers and children."
