Ms Jonquil Oakland Preschool Site SupervisorMs. Jonquil

Oakland Site Supervisor and Lead Pre-K Teacher

BA degree in Child Development (in progress)

My name is Jonquil Walls, I started working with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old in June of 1999. After one year I went to work for Wells Fargo and stayed there for 6 years. I really missed working with children, so in January of 2007 I returned to what I love. I am currently enrolled at Merritt College working towards my AA degree in Child Development.

As a teacher I believe in providing children with a safe nurturing environment where they can explore and learn. I provide children with learning experiences that promote their cognitive, physical, social/emotional and language development. I am passionate about fostering independence and promoting confidence and healthy self-esteem.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, painting, and many other arts and crafts.

Preschool Teacher 

BA degree in Early Child Development (in progress)

My name is Patrice Adkins, I've been working with children since January 2000. I love creating environments for children that are safe, fun, and educational. Science is my favorite subject to teach. I really enjoy seeing the excitement on children’s faces when we do experiments. I also enjoy indoor and outdoor gross motor activities. I am currently a student at Chabot College, working towards my AA degree in Early Child Development

I spend most of my free time with my three beautiful children. I have two sons ages 17 & 13, and a daughter who is 10. They keep me busy all year long with football, basketball, and soccer. When I’m not cheering at a game, I’m helping them with their homework, doing my own homework, or spending time with my nephew. I also enjoy dancing, cooking and doing yoga.
