Our Teachers

Janell was born and raised in the Los Gatos mountains. She completed her early childhood education at West Valley College. After finishing school she worked full time as a preschool teacher in Santa Cruz. In 1992 she got married and started a family. After joining a co-op with her son, she realized how much she enjoyed being part of the co-op experience. In 2003, when her daughter was ready to start preschool, Shannon was looking for a teacher, so they started school together. She is married and has two children.

Johanna was raised in San Jose and completed the Child Development Program at De Anza College.  She has an AA degree in Liberal Arts with an emphasis on Social and Behavioral Science.  She first joined Shannon in 2012 as a participating parent when she enrolled her son in the co-op program.  She also served a year on the board as Treasurer.  When a teaching position opened up in 2015, the transition was a natural one.  She and her husband are parents to three sons.
