Jackie Junio

University of Hawaii,


Jackie’s early childhood education journey began as a Sunday school teacher’s assistant at the age of 13 and led her to becoming a preschool teacher and an administrator, specializing in the Montessori Method. Outside of the classroom, she has coached youth rugby and flag football. Her combined experience in education, child development, and non-profit during the past nine years have allowed her to sharpen her skills in communications and management. The partnership between teachers and families are essential to student’s success. She hopes to be an advocate for both parties in order to achieve a more perfect classroom.
