Jody Gonzalez has been in the field of Early Child Education since 1990. Jody started her education with a pre-school teaching certification at Dartmouth High School in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Along with being certified she also completed an internship at Pace Head Start in New Bedford, Massachusetts. After working in Boston with children with behavioral difficulties, she moved to Florida and began working as a lead teacher in the Christian community school system. After her time in the Christian schooling community, Jody moved over to two other private schools in the area where she worked as the acting director and then as curriculum specialist. At St. Petersburg Pediatrics Day School, Jody took on the role as director of the Lakewood school as well as being the head designer and coordinator of our program.
As of 2016 I have a little over 15 years of experience in the area of preschool management in Pinellas County. I am currently pursuing my A.S Degree in Early Childhhood and am in good standing with all of the local governing agencies that manage our schools. On a personal note, I was born in Florida and am an official “Native Floridian”. My two children were also born and raised here. My son Stephen lives in Seminole with his wife and daughter just a few streets over from me and my husband Paul. My daughter Becca currently attends UCF in Orlando.
