Josephine Roselle (Jo) is the proud mother of nine children, ages 18 to 36 and ten grandchildren (and counting), ages 6 months to 15. Jo has been married thirty-seven years to her husband Gary and they have lived with their family on Page Brook Road, in Greene, NY for the past nineteen of those years.
Jo is a dynamic, high-energy person who not only homeschooled all of her 9 children for over twenty-two years, but also helped pastor a small church with her husband, and spearheaded various community enrichment programs such as couples counseling, children's bible classes, and Binghamton University student outreach groups.
Faced with a soon to be empty nest, Jo decided to go back to school several years ago to complete a Masters in Educational Studies from Binghamton University. After working in childcare at the Campus Preschool at Binghamton University, at the Family Enrichment Network in Johnson City, and at Hillel Academy in Binghamton, Jo decided to use her education and vast experience with children's education to open a Child Care and Preschool facility based in her home.
In addition to being extremely qualified for the job of caring for and teaching children, Jo has a deep love and affinity for children and almost supernatural patience... just ask any of her nine children!
