Janet Chisler

Director – Sequoia Preschool Academy, Modesto CA




My earliest esperiences in the educational system as a child only impressed upon me what “not” to do with children. This highly negative experience only heightened my fear of teachers, suppressed a love for learning, as well as distrust in a non-nurturing and unsafe environment. In time, however, I learned not all teachers yell, hit, or hurt children who are trying to learn the concepts they are so intent upon teaching them.

I learned that there were other positive ways of teaching children that would inevitably grow mutual trust, admiration, cooperation, and ultimate learning experience for the child. Perhaps due to this fact, it would serve as the inspiration, spark and pivotal turn that eventually would spur me along into a life-long love of working with, teaching and learning from children.
