About Me/Contact Me

Hi there!  My name is Jessi, a.k.a. Ms.Jessi.  I've been in the early childhood field for about 18 or so years.  I live and work in the hot Arizona desert. 

Preschool is where it's at!  They are so funny, cute, sassy, honest, predictable, not so predictable and full of curiosity.  My goal each year is to take all those wonderful qualities and allow the environment of the classroom to expand on each child.  

I get my name from my mom.  I never was a very neat child.  Messy Jessi came about from my mom finding leftover lunches under my bed, mounds of dirty (and clean, I'm sure) clothes sprawled around my room and lots of other "stuff" around.  Funny thing, I'm really organized!  As an adult with a home, family and office I've had to find a way to keep my "organized mess" not so messy.  I'm able to get my "messy" tendencies out with the children in class!  Messy painting, messy clay, messy mounds of blocks, messy collaging, messy cooking, etc., etc.

Along with being a full time preschool teacher, I'm also a full time mom!  I have a silly 3 yr old son (Pickle) and a sweet baby girl (Blueberry).  There are times I like to blog about what I do at home with my own family. Although Pickle doesn't really love art as much as his mama, I find time to give him other creative outlets. 

I'm so glad you have found your way to my blog.  I truly hope to inspire you to get on your hands and knees, pull on your creative hat and just have simple fun with children!  I love comments, too.  Good and bad (not really, but I'm trying to take criticism better)! 

That's me!  I picked this photo 'cause my hair was all messy!  :)
