Hello I am Mrs. Jacqueline Stuart. I love teaching! Everyday is always a new adventure and a gift from God. The children's wonderful smiles and great stories always fill my heart with joy. I became employed at Epiphany Cathedral School in 1992.
I attended the University of South Florida and graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Later I attended Barry University and earned my Master of Science degree in Exceptional Student Education.
My Florida certifications include:
• Primary Education
• Elementary Education
• Varying Exceptionalities
From the Diocese of Venice I have my Catechist certification.
Professional development is always important to me as I strive to learn new ideas and methods by attending workshops, class and conferences.
A bible verse I try to live by is 1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
The professional organizations that I belong to include:
• NCEA National Catholic Education Association
• NAEYC National Association for the Education of Young Children
• SECA Southern Early Childhood Association
My family and I enjoy relaxing at the beach both during the day and at sunset. Reading is a wonderful source of pleasure and relaxation for me. I truly enjoy baking and cooking. Our kitchen always smells yummy from brownies or cookies.
Junior Kindergarten is a year of great exploration with an emphasis on phonemic awareness skills and number sense development. A great educational and spiritual foundation is what I strive to give to all my students. I believe that a positive self-image and strong self-esteem are the two greatest assets a child can possess. I strive to insure that all my students achieve these qualities. A well- rounded holistic, social, emotional, academic program is provided in this Catholic Environment.
