Chastidy Jones
Level II B

Associate

 

Chastidy Jones is an Associate at the Buckhead Campus.  With over eight years of experience in childcare, she adds a protective, yet nurturing spirit to the room. As the oldest of three children in her family, she finds that teaching young children life skills comes naturally. Prior to finding Suzuki, she worked as a nanny.

Chastidy first came to Suzuki in May 2012 as an associate in Pre Primary.  After working for a year, her love of teaching led her to Japan, where she taught English for two years. When she returned to Atlanta in November of 2015, she joined the Level II team. Chastidy appreciates the chance to work with a younger age group as it allows her to witness them growing so quickly into functioning and independent little people. She enjoys brightening each child’s day by showing them her smile and practicing their favorite lessons!  She is mindful that children learn to smile from their environment, so she works to create a relaxed and joyful space for learning. Her excitement for language helps to guide the children to learn new words to express themselves.

In her spare time, Ms. Jones enjoys traveling to new and familiar places to explore and spending time with family.  She also enjoys finding new crafts and mastering different ways to apply them to her everyday life.

Chastidy is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University where she studied Early Childhood Education.  She is thrilled to be able to apply her knowledge of child development daily in the lives of Suzuki students.
