Teacher Jonahs was born and raised in Western North Carolina and graduated from Guilford College in 2016 with a BA in English. After graduating she moved to Richmond, Virginia and worked as an AmeriCorps Team Lead in an elementary school. She worked closely with the Kindergarten and 4th grade classrooms during the day, and lead the 4th grade classroom in their after-school program.
In 2017 she moved to Seattle and began working for Seattle Gymnastics Academy. After two years working at the front desk, her passion for education and creating supportive and nurturing learning environments lead her to apply for an open position in the Seattle Preschool. She spent March through June of 2019 in the Seattle Preschool classroom working closely with the students and teachers, and is excited to continue her career in education at the Seattle Preschool + Pre-K.
