My name is Jonney, and I am the Mentor Educator for Rainbow and Raindrop here at Hilltop. I am so excited to be a part of this new program and look forward to this journey we are all about to embark on!
A little about me…. I was born and raised in Renton, WA and two years ago moved to the Seattle area (my family feels as though I have moved across the world!) and I have loved being so close to work! I have been in the ECE world for over 16 years now (wow time flies!) and I have worked with every age group from birth to 12 years of age. Most of that time was spent in childcare settings much like Hilltop and some of that time was spent being a nanny. The majority of my experience has been with infants and toddlers, with a combined 8+ years of experience with these age groups. Apart from being in the classroom, I have also been on the administration side of childcare. I was a program supervisor for a preschool program for 2 years before coming to Hilltop. Back in 2006 I received my CDA (Child Development Associate) and am I currently enrolled at North Seattle College to finish up my bachelor’s degree. During my studies I have focused on infant and toddler development and infant brain development.
In my personal time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We like to go camping, play games, tell jokes, laugh, and love a good bon fire! I also enjoy relaxing with a good book, watching a movie, or rooting on the Seahawks!
I am looking forward to getting to know you all and being a part of your child’s growth and development.
