Larissa started working at JCC’s Gan Rimon campus as the lead young toddler teacher in January of 2020. Her background includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Shippensburg University. Larissa also completed master level courses at Penn State York as part of the Director Credential program. She has been a lead teacher in a 3-year-old classroom, infant room, and a young toddler room prior to working at Gan Rimon. She believes whole-heartedly that the first 5 years of life set the building blocks for who we become as adults, and it is her passion to nurture and enrich the lives of these young minds.
Larissa married her high school sweetheart and together they have two children- their son Wyatt is 6 and their daughter Skye is 4. As a family, they love to go on trips, especially to the zoo, parks, playgrounds, and new places.
