My name is Jennifer Severs and I am thrilled to be working with your child in the classroom. This school year begins my 22nd year as an educator.  I attended The University of South Carolina, studying Early Childhood Education.   Over the years, I have taken many hours of professional development and continuing education in order to be prepared to meet each child’s needs. In addition I recently obtained my Registered Behavior Technician certification.

I love teaching!  My mission as a teacher is to encourage each child to discover the joy of learning, and to help each child develop a strong belief in his or her own ability.  I want them to do their best and to have a sense of pride in accomplishing their personal goals.   

My name is Marie Gruca and I am very excited to begin another school year with your children at ABELS Academy.  I am the mother of two small children, Joshua and Alexia.  Prior to working for ABELS Academy, I spent 7 years as an educator with Lake County Schools and enjoyed every minute of it!  Aside from being an teacher at ABELS Academy, I recently obtained my Registered Behavior Technician certification.  I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. Type your paragraph here.
