Our 2021-2022 Wonderful Teachers
I've been in children's music and ministry for most of my life. I am honored to teach children about our Lord and to observe Him by bringing the little ones unto Him. I have my CDA credential, my Staff Credential to instruct VPK and over 18 years experience as a Bible/Music Director. I have written and directed over 20 children's programs, and two VBS/drama camps. I am a puppeteer, pianist, piano teacher, choir director and song writer. I have also recorded and produced many music CD projects. I love teaching children about music and to see their joy, and creativity when they perform.
I am Sarah Jones and I love working with young children. I am married to a wonderful husband and have two children. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a Florida Child Care Professional Credential. My passion in teaching preschool is to instill in children a love of school and learning. I am also passionate about teaching young children the love of God. I am blessed to have this position in a Christian preschool where I can bring these two passions together to positively impact the next generation.
