Meet Our Staff

Hello, my name is Jaycine Bax. This is my second year of teaching at St. Peter in one of the preschool classrooms. I have several years of experience teaching preschool aged children in a catholic school setting. Preparing children for kindergarten is my absolute favorite. I also love spending time with my two dogs Josie and Coco and hanging out with my nieces and nephews being the cool aunt. I was born and raised by my grandparents in Saint Elizabeth with my older sister and two younger brothers. I recently bought a house a few miles down the road from where I grew up and have been remodeling it like crazy. My ultimate dream is to visit Ireland someday. A few favorites of mine are iced white mochas with sweet cream cold foam from Starbucks, Mexican food, and MIO fruit punch mix for water.
