TEACHERS AND STAFF

Jenni

Director

Thank you for visiting our website! I'm Miss Jenni. Here at RSG we strongly believe children flourish and learn in a  fun, clean and  engaging environment with plenty of hands-on experiences that stimulate their curiosity and natural sense of wonder. We are proud how our teachers offer a welcoming and caring atmosphere inside the classroom where children's most basic, as well as emotional, needs are met. We are convinced in building strong parent-teacher relationships and always have an open channel of communication between us to guarantee your child's care and future success as a well-rounded individual is fulfilled.


Gabriela

Floater

Hi! My name is Gabriela and I'm 23 years old. I was born in Tijuana, Mexico. I came to the United States six years ago and it has been a great experience meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Since I was a  little girl I liked to take care of all my cousins but it was when I was growing up that I became interested in the career of education. Now I'm pursuing my career in Child Development at Cuyamaca College and getting ready to transfer to SDSU. My experience working at Ready Set Grow has been incredible while watching these children grow, learn and develop all their abilities.

Jill

Pre-K Teacher

Hi my name is Jill.  Also known as Miss Jill, I am originally from Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University.  I am married and have a daughter in college and a son who is a senior in high school. In my 35 years of teaching I also taught kindergarten and was an assistant director. I really enjoy teaching Pre-K and preparing each child for Kindergarten. I have been in RSG for 15 years!




Wafaa

Pre-K Teacher

I've been working in Early Childhood Education for over eight years. I worked at numerous preschools, including Cuyamaca College Child Development Center, but none compare to Ready Set Grow Learning Center where it has felt like a second home to me the past two years. Currently I am the lead teacher in the 3's room! I earned an Associate Degree in 2013, of which 48 units were in Early Child Education as well as an Achievement Certificate in Science Studies. In addition, I received a Bachelor's Degree in mathematical studies from my native country back in 2000. Whether it is being a  proud mother to three wonderful children or teaching a group of preschoolers, my love of children is the key to my ability to gain their trust and build a strong relationship with them. It gives me much pleasure to provide the children with a warm and nurturing environment  in which they can grow and learn most effectively.

Zainab

I am a proud mother of three grown sons. Back in my home country, I received a Bachelor's Degree in Geography with certification to teach Geography. After immigrating to America, I began my studies in Early Childhood Education. I'm almost finished with my Associate Degree and look forward to growing in the Child Development Field. I love working at Ready set Grow where I'm the lead Teacher in the 2's room. Working with kids is my passion and it's always so wonderful to see them grow and learn!

Annette

Pre-K Teacher

I am Miss Annette.  I have been working for Ready Set Grow for 12 years!  I’m married and have two grown children, a son and a daughter, three step daughters and five grandchildren!  I’ve lived in San Diego for 22 years and born and raised in the Seattle area.  I took care of infants at Ready Set Grow for 12 years, but I am now a Pre-K Teacher.  It’s been amazing to watch children grow, learn and develop into school age children.  Teaching children is very rewarding and something I love!

Natalie

School-age Teacher

Greetings and salutations, my name is Natalie, I am a 20 year -old Chicana born and raised in San Diego. I'm currently studying to receive my Associates Degree in Sociology and looking forward to transfering to a UC in the  near future, where I will also minor in Child Development. As the youngest in my family, my desire to have a younger sibling fueled my inclination to become a child care provider, which eventually led me to a wonderful job here at Ready Set Grow. I am very grateful for the opportunity to further develop my ability to connect with children while maintaining a priority for their safety and well-being.
