Degrees and Certifications:

Jo-Ellen Rowley

This is my 10th year teaching Kindergarten and my 5th year teaching at Essex Elementary School. I have a Master’s degree in Child Development from Tufts University and have taught infants through 2nd graders in a variety of different settings since 2003. 

My philosophy on teaching is first and foremost about building positive relationships with children and families.  To this end, I will seek out your expertise to help ensure a successful and gratifying year for your child.  I strive to create a caring, structured, and safe environment – both physically and emotionally – where children are willing to take risks to learn and grow.

I have a 2.5 year old daughter named Aliza and a black and white cat named Furby.  In my spare time I enjoy refereeing soccer, being outdoors and spending time with my family.
