Hi all, my name is Jackie Hand. I have been an Early Childhood Special Education teacher since 2015. I spent a few years of my teaching career as an Early ACCESS teacher–working with families and children birth-3, had the opportunity to teach preschool overseas, and am continuing my career as a special education preschool teacher. I received my BA in Early Childhood Special Education from Iowa State University, and completed my MA in Early Childhood Special Education through the University of Toledo. I love working with young children and families, and look forward to working with you and your preschooler this year! When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family (lots of road trips to Chicago), doing DIY projects, drinking coffee, riding my bike, practicing yoga, and traveling (near and far)! I look forward to an exciting year of learning and development. Thank you!
