Jenifer Machado is very excited to join our team as our TK Reading/Math teacher. She has a Bachelor’s degree from Loyola University in Chicago as well as Art Studies accreditations from the Art Institute of Chicago. She has previously worked as a Kindergarten Assistant, taught Religious Education and Art classes, and has provided private Math Tutoring. Prior to starting her family, she worked in the corporate world in Chicago. She has traveled extensively throughout the globe. She is married and has 4 boys, all of whom currently attend St. John the Baptist: Connor (8th), Aidan (6th), Finn (5th), and Beckett (TK). Before moving to Napa from Chicago in 2014, she homeschooled her boys for 1 year and, in doing so, drove across the country with them several times to offer an experiential out-of-the-classroom education. She is currently part of our Family Club School Leadership Committee and creates the annual yearbook.
