Barbara Jimenez, Student Services, Miami

Barbara and her husband live in Miami with their two lively children, a 12-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter. After earning her Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Reading Education, she began her career as a school teacher in the public-school setting and taught Kindergarten and First grade for eight years. She then became a stay-at-home mom for six years. In 2009, she founded a home-based early childhood program with a focus on nature, play, & social emotional development for the whole child. In May of 2017 she decided to close the program to pursue working with parents to help guide them to live and parent more consciously. When Barbara discovered LifeWays she resonated with the philosophy it teaches and recognized what a wonderful resource it is to support parents and caregivers on their journey. She looks forward to working with the program and learning more.
