Mrs. Jacqueline Stuart Bio

Hello I am Mrs. Jacqueline Stuart.   I love teaching!  Everyday is always a new adventure and a gift from God.  The children's wonderful smiles and great stories always fill my heart with joy. I became employed at Epiphany Cathedral School in 1992.

I attended the University of South Florida and graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  Later I attended Barry University and earned my Master of Science degree in Exceptional Student Education.

My Florida certifications include:

• Primary Education
• Elementary Education
• Varying Exceptionalities

From the Diocese of Venice I have my Catechist certification.

Professional development is always important to me as I strive to learn new ideas and methods by attending workshops, class and conferences.

A bible verse I try to live by is 1 John 3:18 
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

The professional organizations that I belong to include:

• NCEA National Catholic Education Association  
• NAEYC National Association for the Education of Young Children
• SECA Southern Early Childhood Association

My family and I enjoy relaxing at the beach both during the day and at sunset.  Reading is a wonderful source of pleasure and relaxation for me.  I truly enjoy baking and cooking.  Our kitchen always smells yummy from brownies or cookies.

Junior Kindergarten is a year of great exploration with an emphasis on phonemic awareness skills and number sense development. A great educational and spiritual foundation is what I strive to give to all my students.  I believe that a positive self-image and strong self-esteem are the two greatest assets a child can possess. I strive to insure that all my students achieve these qualities. A well- rounded holistic, social, emotional, academic program is provided in this Catholic Environment.
