Jenny Pritchett

Preschool Threes Teacher
I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Virginia. I have many years of teaching experience, including the privilege of being a mentor teacher.
 
I was once told, “The sweet spot is where your greatest joy meets the world’s greatest need.” My greatest joy and passion is teaching! Guiding and encouraging students to meet their full potential is certainly one of the world’s needs (and I don’t have the skill set to achieve world peace!). I feel I have found my “sweet spot” at Virginia Chance School with the three-year-olds, and this will be my sixth teaching year at VCS.
 
I am also involved in the Magic Ladder Literacy Project, an exciting new technology and methodology for teaching reading. I volunteer with my husband on Mondays and Tuesdays, working with disadvantaged struggling readers in the JCPS school system. Outside of school, I am an active member of my church, I have been in the same book group for 15 years, and I love to work out, hike, and bake.
