Jessica Laleo

Year 5 Class Teacher
Child Protection Officer

My name is Jessica Laleo. I was raised in the beautiful state of Colorado in the United States. I first came to Tanzania in 2005 to mobilize an informal education program for street children in Arusha. This experience helped me realize my desire to start a teaching career. I returned to the U.S. and completed an Associated of Arts degree in human services and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in elementary education.

I have several years experience working in an integrated Early Childhood classroom setting and experience working with both children and adults with disabilities in various different capacities.   After almost 10 years back home in the U.S. my husband, my 4 year old son and myself are very excited to be here in Morogoro and at MIS. I enjoy travelling, reading, spending time with friends and experiencing different cultures.
