My name is Joanna Loewenstein, but my favorite people call me Miss L.! I am thrilled to be teaching Pre-K at The Jenkins School as of this August 2020! I have my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Special Education from Elizabethtown College. My Master's degree is in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Children's Literature from the Pennsylvania State University. I have years of experience as a lead preschool teacher in a private academic school setting. I also have planned and implemented an extended day program for 3-5 year old children and possess summer camp experience with 3-6 year olds. In addition to teaching, I have done children's programming for toddlers up to early elementary aged children in a public library setting. I am passionate about teaching young children and early literacy!
A former Jersey girl, I came to this part of Pennsylvania for college, fell in love with the area, and never left! My boyfriend was born and raised here in Lancaster County and we enjoy visiting Lancaster City and the surrounding countryside, in addition to taking road trips. I am close to my parents, now retired to the Lancaster area, and my sister. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy time with family and friends, as well as partaking in many hobbies. I love books, music, art, writing, decorating, all things vintage, and exploring the local culinary scene. I also enjoy animals and so appreciate seeing the farm animals in this area. I look forward to getting to know all of you!
