My name is Jamie Hohensee. This is my third year of teaching with Lincoln Public Schools. I am thrilled to be apart of the Pyrtle Staff and the Preschool Program.
I love working with children and seeing them learn and grow. I feel the best way children can do this is by being hands on and in control of their learning. I also feel that providing a variety of enriched learning opportunities will help foster children’s growth. We will definitely spend our days learning, playing, and exploring!
I have been married for 11 years to my amazing husband Adam. We have two adorable little daughters, Makenna (7 years) and Elyana (5 years). I was born and raised in Lincoln, NE and attended schools within the LPS system and know that this is an amazing district and I am thrilled to be apart of it on the professional side of it now.
I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Inclusive Early Child Development: Birth to Third Grade in May of 2008. After graduation I worked for a non-profit organization here in Lincoln, NE in the Early Head Start program. While working there I had my first daughter and decided I had a desire to stay home with her and open my in home childcare. I spent 5 years playing and teaching children ages birth to 5 years while snuggling my girls. During this time, I implemented a preschool program to help the children become kindergarten ready. My last year of being a childcare provider, my family had the privilege of having our oldest daughter attend preschool with LPS where I gained insight from a parent perspective. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education at Concordia University-Nebraska.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your student and learn all about each of your wonderful families.
