Before they became exceptional teachers, our teachers were exceptional learners.
When it comes to teachers, we’re picky. And we’re okay with that. We only hire dedicated professionals who embrace our philosophy and strengthen our curriculum.
Our five teachers are highly trained and experienced in early childhood education. Each brings a unique strength to the learning environment. And each receives continuing education to ensure they are up to date with the latest information.
Let’s meet them-
Jennae Sevvom, Founder, Director, Teacher –
Jennae founded Harmony Preschool in 1991. But, she has taught preschool in Boulder for over 35 years. She remains Harmony’s Director and teaches part time. Jennae served as a validator with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for four years and continues to teach part time Love & Logic parenting classes at Harmony.
When not at Harmony, Jennae enjoys spending time with her two grown sons and adorable grandsons. She credits them for being her inspiration along this journey and says they have taught her more about love than she could have ever imagined.
Jennae also enjoys cooking, sewing, gardening and reading. She has a healthy obsession with home remodeling and design, the Rolling Stones and Bonnie Raitt.
Teaching comes so naturally to Leslie. It’s what she was meant to do. Children are easily drawn to her with her calm, welcoming manner and her wealth of knowledge. A student recently said, “Let’s go ask Miss Leslie, she knows everything.”
Leslie has been teaching for 6 years. She received her degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina and is Director qualified. Leslie is also our curriculum director and Spanish teacher. Ironically, Leslie’s first job out of college was a program in Columbia, South Carolina also called Harmony Preschool!
Leslie enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking, gardening (Last summer she planted over 20 tomato plants!), cooking, snowboarding and is lover of anything outdoors!
Jen Clark –
It was only natural that Jen decided to teach at Harmony. Both her own two children attended Harmony during their preschool years.
Jen has been with us for five years. Jen strongly believes in the Harmony philosophies that make it such a special school. She loves and is inspired by children. Jen has a calm energy that helps new children and parents feel at ease. She always brings a positive attitude and her enthusiasm to Harmony.
Jen’s been in Colorado since graduating Colorado State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science and major in Human Development and Family Studies. She then went on to the University of Colorado to earn her teacher’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in literacy. Like Megan, Leslie and Jennae, Jen is also Director Qualified. In Jen’s free time she enjoys hiking, skiing, traveling and spending time with her family.
When you first meet Candice, it’s hard not to be captivated by her warmth and playful energy. Two characteristics she happily shares with her preschoolers every day.
Aside from her daily teaching duties, Candice also teaches our yoga classes, manages our blog and is our resident photographer.
Candice has her degree in English and Elementary Education and is currently working on becoming director qualified. Prior to coming to Boulder, Candice taught in a small school in North Carolina.
Candice loves the Boulder lifestyle and on any given day, she can be seen riding her bike around town, or hiking with her dog Maple.
