Jaimie grew up on a small farm in northeastern Ohio. She attended Geneva College where she met her husband of 28 years. He happened to be a graduate of TKA in 1982. So when we had children of school age, TKA was our only choice because of his wonderful experience here many years ago. We have three children, two of which have graduated from TKA. Our daughter is currently a My daughter is now a senior and a member of the competitive cheerleading team.

We live in Loxahatchee with quite a menagerie of animals. Each year we host our JK Farm Day and enjoy sharing our rural life with the JK kids and their families.

Prior to my career here, I had been a room mom; so joining the wonderful elementary staff was like joining friends and family. While I was at home with my children many years ago, I taught prepared childbirth classes, Babywise, and Growing Kids God’s Way.

Teaching Junior Kindergarten is a wonderful job and a great opportunity to help children begin their schooling years ready for success and having fun while they learn.
