Hi, I am Jessica Garcia-Casanas, the Kindergarten Aide here at Mother of God School. I am originally from Puerto Rico, where I earned my Bachlor degree on Early Childhood Education at Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico recinto de Arecibo. In my small hometown, Florida PR, I was the leader of the youth group at my parish Nuestra Señora de la Merced for four years. Also, I went on a mission trip to Venezuela with my family and other youth. I am fully bilingual in Spanish and English. I moved for the first time on my own when I was awarded an internship at Disney World in Orlando Florida. After getting married I moved with my husband Alexander to Indiana, where I worked as a Lead Teacher in Patty Jischke Early Childhood Center at Purdue University for two and a half years. After my husband and I moved to Maryland, we sought a full time preschool for my daughter and we found Mother of God School. We really liked the school, we wanted to enroll her here, and I wanted to work for the school as well!
