Jessie Grees

Kindergarten Teacher

My teaching experience began outdoors where I worked alongside passionate environmental educators. After learning and exploring with children as they climbed trees, dug up worms, and built igloos, I graduated from college and made my way to the big city. At a private school in New York City, I found a home for my innovative and creative mind. Now, like my earliest students, each day I find myself exploring every limb of the tree I am currently climbing: this career called education.
