Jessica Shaw

RECE - Supervisor

Hi, my name is Jessica Shaw and I am the RECE Supervisor of the Apple Tree Preschool at the Whitby location. I graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at Durham College in 2011. A year after graduating, I joined the Apple Tree Preschool family in 2012 as the RECE Kindergarten teacher. Since starting at the Apple Tree Preschool I have gained many experiences and have grown a lot within the centre over the past 4 years. Within this time span I have taken on different roles such as; the RECE kindergarten teacher, Assistant Supervisor, and Supervisor. I have had a passion for education for as long as I can remember, it has always been a big part of my life. My dad was a teacher for the Catholic School Board and I always dreamed that I would become a teacher and follow in his footsteps. His students loved him and he made a real impact on them. Making a difference in someone’s life is the most rewarding of careers and that’s all I wanted to do. In high school I took a course about Early Childhood Education, in that class I realized that being an Early Childhood Educator was the route that I wanted to take. Over the past few years working at Apple Tree, I have created great relationships with both the children that I care for and their families. Giving the gift of education to children at such a young age is very rewarding to me and I know that at this point in my life that I have made the right decision and continue to see it every day in the impact that I make shaping the lives of the children that are in my care.
