The Teacher of the Month award is designed to recognize an employee that exemplifies our core values, which are compassion, humility, integrity, loyalty and discipline. This month we are pleased to announce that our 2020 November National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Jeannette of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of San Antonio at Dominion.
In talking about how Ms. Jeannette exemplifies LSP’s core values, Program Director, Ms. Taylor said, “Ms. Jeannette has been a valued member of LSP Dominion for almost four years. She started in an infant classroom and worked her way up to Head Teacher. Her loyalty, dedication and work ethic is above and beyond the norm. She is appreciated deeply by all of our staff, families and students. Ms. Jeannette goes above and beyond her job description and excels at any task given! I couldn’t ask for a more loyal human for this team. She has helped steer LSP Dominion more times than not when I travel, and she’s always willing to do anything for Ms. Elia, our Assistant Program Director, and myself with a smile.”
Here is some fun information about her and what makes her such a standout!
What age group do you teach?
What is the name of your classroom?
I started off as a teacher in Lilliput and now I am a Head Teacher. I have the pleasure of working with all age groups.
What do you love most about the age group you teach?
The thing I love most about working with little ones is the ability to take part in helping them reach their milestones. As Head Teacher, I love having the opportunity to work alongside teachers and providing them with the support to excel in the classroom.

My favorite curriculum activities involve creating sensory bins/bottles/bags. I love providing children opportunities to explore using their senses. I also enjoy collaborating with the teachers to create Reggio inspired monthly required projects.

I became an early childhood educator because I love children. I wanted to do something that would keep me active and always learning.
