Jessie Lay

Preschool Fours/Pre-K Teacher
I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a Bachelor in Elementary Education from Western Carolina University. I taught for three and a half years in a program that focused on arts-infused, inquiry-based learning in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System.
I was drawn to Virginia Chance School because of our belief in fostering creativity, problem-solving, and skill-building, and a lifetime love of learning. I believe that children can learn best through hands-on experiences, discovery, exploration, and play.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and exploring the many things Louisville has to offer. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my family and my dog, Kero.
