Meet Jovahna

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification

Hello! I am Jovahna and I come from a wide and experienced background working with and caring for children of all ages and backgrounds. I began my experience working with children at the age of seventeen when I first began working at a summer camp for children with various disabilities. I realized my gifts for working with and caring for children and also my love for teaching art while in a camp setting. I taught art at the camp and then studied art and psychology during college. After graduating college, I worked as an ABA therapist for children on the autism spectrum. I worked one on one with them providing therapeutic sessions incorporating my background in the creative arts in hands on based learning. I then went on to work as a classroom aide for children with emotional and behavioral issues in a classroom setting, working primarily with them one Read more on one. In addition, I have also worked as a reading specialist and talented and gifted teacher for children in a public school in grades k-5, and also as an art teacher for a tri-lingual elementary school. I have a passion for teaching and caring for children one on one, and in small groups in particular, but can also teach and lead children in a larger group setting. I hold a degree in Psychology and Art, and also a Master's degree in K-12 Art Education, with a specialty certification as a Reading Specialist/Interventionist. I am currently certified with my teaching license in the state of Arizona. I relocated to Boulder in 2013 to pursue graduate work in the field of psychotherapy. I am currently a second year graduate student at Naropa University.
