Jenny Douglas
SAzAEYC Affiliate Representative

Jenny started working at a pre-school when she was still in high school, setting her on the path to a career teaching and supporting young children, their families and educators ever since. Jenny is the director of Second Street Children’s School, a program she started teaching in, when it first opened 25 years ago. Jenny first joined SAzAEYC in 1991 and has been involved ever since. She has served on the board of SAzAEYC for three years and is currently the president. Jenny was the 2012 recipient of the SAzAEYC Francis Miller Community Action on Behalf of Young Children Award.

Jenny earned a BA in sociology and family studies from the University of Arizona. Jenny has also worked for the Blake Foundation as an early interventionist and support coordinator working with children and families in their homes. Jenny serves on the board for Second Street Children’s School and the board for The Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding.

Through her years of service, she has experienced firsthand the amazing results a small group of dedicated people can achieve when working together toward a common goal. Working in a field that is often under-recognized by our greater society, she feels it is vital that we support a professional organization such as NAEYC.

Jenny has three children and she is active in their schools, sports and other activities. She has been married to her husband for 18 years. Jenny and her family love to travel both near and far – one of their favorite Southern Arizona destinations is Bisbee.
