Ms. Jen Mullaney

Hello! I am so happy to continue my eleventh year as the Mouse Room teacher at the Valley View Early Childhood Center. This is my sixteenth year teaching, overall. I have had expereince teaching kindergarten and preschool classrooms for children with and without identified special needs.

I truly enjoy engaging the children in meaningful hands-on explorations of the world around them. I love connecting our learning goals with real life expereinces. I do not think I have ever repeated the same Unit of Study the same way -- every year and group of children is different, therefore giving me new inspiration.

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife and a mom to two girls - a five year-old and a two year-old. We enjoy bike rides, games, walks outside, and vacations together!
