Jeanne joined TFEC in June 2011 to help complete a grant from the Office of Child Development and Early Learning of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. When that grant was eliminated in the 2012-2013 state budget, TFEC decided to continue the program, change the name to Capital Beginnings and keep Jeanne as program coordinator. Jeanne graduated from Indiana University of PA with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Master’s in Early Literacy from Wilkes University. In addition to her part-time duties at TFEC, Jeanne works part-time as the Early Childhood coordinator for South Middleton School District.
