from our staff

Suzanne Jakuboswki
Position: Chef, Animal Care, Garden Teacher

Hello everyone,
I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor's in Art History.  I have spent most of my professional life as a teacher, and this is the field that I have been attracted to the most.  I have also been a household assistant for the last four years.
I am a hard worker with a very creative streak.  I have many valuable skills for a teaching environment.  For nine years I taught at Laguna Blanca School and am a household manager and assistant where I cook many of the family's meals.  I have planned parties alone for as many as 150 guests for the family as well as participated in their corporate business.  My father is a well-known chef in Santa Barbara and I have spent many years learning his recipes. I am also a freelance photographer and specialize in portraiture.  I also have proficient computer skills, and was a computer teacher.
I am loyal, confidential, and trustworthy.  I am hardworking and motivated by challenging tasks.  I perform duties with utmost professionalism and promptness, and do them to the very best of my ability. In addition to having a BA in Art History, I have also completed 9 ECE units including infant/toddler and am enrolled in additional ECE units.
I look forward to working with your children, watching them grow, working with animals, gardening, and preparing tasty, nutritious snacks and cooking activities here at Hope 4 Kids!
