Hi! My name is Jodi Cipale and I am the Head Start teacher associate in Room 158. This will be my 5th full year at McKee, my 3rd year in this classroom, and my 2nd year in Head Start. I graduated from DMACC with an associate degree in early childhood education and spent 13 years operating and in-home daycare before coming to the school district. Starting this winter, I will attend Upper Iowa University to complete my teaching degree. In my free time, I am a wife, mother of 4 and grandma to 1. I enjoy baking, being creative, gardening, swimming and relaxing on my deck. I’m very excited to work with your preschooler this year!
