Hello! My name is Jenni Relph. I am the Preschool teacher for the three and four-year-old morning classes. This is my twelfth year teaching preschool at Resurrection. During college, I was a Para-educator at Rainbows United. It was there that I realized my love for teaching young children. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communicative Sciences and Disorders and a Child Development Credential for early childhood. My husband, Brandon, is the principal at St. Patrick Catholic School.We have been married for about twelve and a half years. We have three young children. Samuel is seven and a half, Jude is five and a half, and Emilia is three. They are at such sweet ages, and they are keeping me busy. I feel very blessed to be a mama and a teacher. Some of our favorite things to do together are to travel and spend time with family. I love to read and my favorite snack is chocolate!
My teaching philosophy: I believe that each child is a special and unique gift from God. Every child needs a secure, loving, and an engaging environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. I believe that young children learn best through play. It is my goal as a teacher to encourage their natural curiosity and creativity, promote a respect for God and all of His creatures, and help children meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, happy, and nurturing.
I hope that your child loves their first taste of school. I truly love everyday of being a teacher. It is a tremendous joy, privilege, or blessing.
Welcome! The first day of school is just around the corner. For many of you, this is the first time that you will be sending your little one to school...and it is a very exciting time! I am looking forward to this new year. I feel very blessed to be one of your child's very first teachers. It is a tremendous joy and privilege!

Your child will need a full sized backpack labeled with his or her name.
