Rebecca Johnson / Jerrica Burr
My name is Rebecca, I am twenty years old and I am attending school to obtain my Early Childhood Education certificate. I went to Sacred Heart School from Preschool to Grade 7. I graduated from Delta Secondary school in 2015. I had been attending Kwantlen Polytechnic University getting my minor in counseling.
Until I began my volunteer work at Lil’ Saints, I had planned on becoming a social worker! After being here for two short weeks I had decided, with some help from Mylene, that working in a preschool is something I can see myself being very successful at! As well as attending school and working two days a week at Lil’ Saints, I am a waitress at the Old Spaghetti Factory. I have always enjoyed babysitting and still continue to do so when I have free time.
Upon Jericca leaving in December I am going to be filling her position and I cannot wait to use all my skills and knowledge to help your children grow and learn!
Jerrica Burr has been an Early Childhood Educator since 2012. In that time she has had experience working in childcare, after school care, preschool and with special needs. She has recently completed her post basic schooling allowing her to work with infant/toddlers and special needs. She also has a bachelor’s degree from Kwantlen Polytechnic University with a major in psychology.
Jerrica sees the early years as an important time for social skills and learning how to talk to and play with other children. She is also a big supporter of outdoor play in all-weather as she sees it as vital to the development of children. She also believes that children learn best through play as that is how they figure out the world and how things work. Her favourite part of being a preschool instructor is watching the creativity and imagination of the children and hearing all of the children’s stories.
Jerrica grew up in Ladner and is excited to start at Lil Saints preschool and be back in the community she grew up in.
