Clementine Jennings-Hess, Preschool Co-Teacher
Clementine Jennings-Hess is thrilled to join the Agassiz Baldwin Community team as Preschool Co-teacher. She strives to implement a Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum. In Reggio Emilia, Italy, teachers see education as research about child development, and they foster creative classroom communities.
The Nurtured Heart Approach also plays an important role in Clementine’s classroom and behavior management. This approach focuses on the greatness in children and gives them clear feedback on desired behavior with non-punitive consequences.
In addition to education, Clementine is passionate about co-operative housing, spiritual community, anti-oppression work, and dancing. She loves playing word games like Taboo and cooking dinner for her eleven housemates!
