Jo was born and raised in Southern California where at the age of 10 she gave her heart to Jesus at a neighborhood Good News Club. As a teen, her involvement in youth group, camps and working at the church was a lifeline that kept her in the faith.
Jo began her teaching career in 1987 while her sons were little and able to attend the Christian preschool and schools where she taught. She taught at Yucaipa Christian School for 14 years before the Lord called her into public school where she taught for 15 years. During her career, Jo has taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades. She looks forward to returning to Christian education where she can teach her students about God’s greatness in all academic areas.
