About Preschool Teacher

Meet Renee, Lead Preschool Teacher, who tells us about her job as a mentor teacher at Children’s Paradise, a chain of child development centers with locations throughout Oceanside and North County founded by Julie Lowen. Renee mentors other teachers as well as high school students studying the Education, Child Development and Family Services career pathway under teacher Jennifer Dubois at Oceanside High School. Educators, especially ones who provide care for little ones, are vital to keeping our economy going so parents can work and go to school at our local businesses and educational institutions. Renee’s story is sponsored by the City of Oceanside. Besides early childhood education units, to be successful in this role requires a love of children and caring about their development and wellbeing. Apply for open roles.
