Outreach Manager and Early Elementary Teacher

Jared is thrilled to be teaching at Civic!  Jared is a veteran school teacher who loves to see young minds flourish!  Jared’s favorite all time book series is Harry Potter and is still awaiting his letter to Hogwarts.  Other activities Jared loves are: anything outdoors, stand-up paddle-boarding, singing, and spending time with his family, friends and two labradoodles.  “I cannot wait to create with all of you this summer!”

What inspires you?
What inspires me the most is watching young minds understand the world better than adults.  As adults, we forget about all the possibilities.  Working with children reminds me that the world is a big beautiful place filled with endless possibilities.

Who is your favorite fictional character?
My favorite fictional character is Harry Potter, of course!  He is brave, a great friend, and the most powerful thing he possesses is love.

What was your favorite after school snack growing up?
My favorite after school snack growing up would be Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies.  I could not WAIT to get home, sit on the couch, turn on the TV, and open up one of those creamy little dreams.
