Jacob has gone from a Virginian farm boy to a high school English teacher to a preschool educator in a very fast and whirlwind few years. Still considering himself new to Seattle going on three years, he feels he is still learning his place in early childhood education. Jacob has worked through the worst trials of Covid with his Hilltop team and is excited to begin another chapter as a lead educator in Ocean room for 2021-2022. Jacob considers his kiddos just as much his teachers as he is theirs, and cannot wait to see what the Ocean kids will bring for learning and fun!
