Althea Jones started at Woodland Park Cooperative School in 2017 as a parent and is now one of our preschool teachers! Her teaching style is child-centered, focusing on respect for the child as a person, and play-focused with the understanding that children learn about their world and the people in it through play. She allows children to take the lead with their learning and gives them the space to do that while connecting with them in a way that meets them right where they are at any given time. Althea believes in providing an atmosphere that is varied, empowering and fun.
