About Us

Jessica is certified in Early Childhood Education as well as Elementary Education.  She has a Masters Degree in Reading Education and a Reading Specialist Certification.  Jessica taught First Grade in Philadelphia, PA for four years and has also taught Intro to Education classes at The University of Scranton as a Graduate Student. She believes children need to feel essential to the learning process.  Active learning stimulates the thought process by providing freedom in decision-making, creativity, and critical thinking skills. 

Danielle has a degree in Elementary Education with PreK – 4 Certification.  She has taught at the preschool level for the past 9 years and is very excited to be able to teach the 2nd grade class this year!  Danielle believes that reading and being read to is a fundamental form of learning.  Each child learns in a different way. Bright Beginnings offers a small class size and the use of hands on activities to expand students learning which is essential to their success.
