Staff Spotlight
Jeanna Putt has been an Early Learners Academy Instructor since the program began back in 2007. Both of her grandmothers were in education and inspired her from a young age to love children and embrace the importance of educating youth. Jeanna enjoys spending her day with fun and energetic children, and truly loves working as a team to provide the best opportunities possible for students. She believes creating a solid foundation when children are young will carry-over and support them in their later years. Jeanna said listening to the preschooler’s creative imaginations and watching the students form their first friendships are among the many things that put a smile on her face each day. Outside of work, Jeanna enjoys spending time with her husband and their three children, as well as reading, gardening, and gluten-free cooking. Jeanna loves her job and hopes to continue working with children for many years to come.  

Thanks, Jeanna, for your dedication to the hundreds of children you have taught over the years!
