Hi, my name is Jodi Harrell! I enjoy being part of the Early Childhood Department where I serve as an Early Childhood Social Worker and Mental Health Consultant. I graduated from Grandview University for my undergraduate degree and the University of Iowa for my master’s degree. I have also been trained in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and I often consult on how to implement PCIT principles in the preschool classroom as well as in the home. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my step-granddaughter, friends, and family; and I love to travel whenever I can.
Hi! My name is Brandon Stumberg and I am the SLP at Taylor. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with an undergraduate degree in Communicative Disorders and a master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. I have been working with preschoolers at Taylor since the building opened in 2014. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with family, fishing, golfing, and walking my dogs.
In my role as Family Engagement Facilitator, I am here to support family, staff and classroom activities while providing information and resources. Hablo español y me gusta apoyar a las familias que hablan español aquí en Taylor. I have degrees from Loyola University Chicago and the University of Iowa, where I received my Masters in Social Work. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, spending time at the lake and learning more about other cultures. Contact me in via email, School CNXT or by phone – I’m happy to help in whatever ways I can.
