Ms. Janinne Villatoro
Janinne was born in Los Angeles, CA, but raised in El Salvador. Janinne went to a Catholic school from preschool through high school, this is one of the reasons why she is fascinated with Saint Sebastian School, because she feels identified with the Catholic faith. In El Salvador, Janinne attended law school, but when she moved to the United States, she discovered her biggest passion was working with children. That passion led her to start taking child development classes. Currently Janinne has two certificates in the area of child development, as well as a certificate as an Outdoor classroom Specialist Implementing the Reggio Emilia approach. Janinne has over five years of experience working with children, previously she worked in a Jewish Academy. Janinne truly believes that being a teacher is a unique opportunity because as a teacher she has the ability to positively impact the development of children. She thinks that being a teacher is an enormous responsibility, but at the same time it is an honor and privilege.
