Hi BLPS families! I’m Rachel Penland and I am very excited to be leading the Hippos classroom! For the last two years, I’ve been in the MDO class at Bethany and had a blast with the one and two year old kiddos! This is my favorite age to teach, as you really get to see them blossom! I’m looking forward to learning, playing, and getting creative this year!
When I’m at home my husband, daughter, and I like to spend time together watching movies, cooking, going for walks, and playing games.Mrs. Jessica
Hi BLPS Families! I am Jessica Sanchez and I will be joining Mrs. Rachel in the Hippos classroom. I love teaching because, not only are the children learning, but I learn something from them every day, too. I love the creativity that teaching allows and just being with the children is fun. I have taught at Bethany for a few years and all three of my children, Sammy, Emma and Leah have attended school here, too.
I am currently attending NOVA Community College for my Early Childhood Certification and I have attended many Early Childhood courses through Fairfax County. When I'm not at Bethany, I like to watch movies, dance, and spend time with my family!
