My name is Ms. Harriet Josleyn and I am in charge of the Aftercare Program and a teacher’s assistant. I was born in Spain but I left there when I was a baby. I just love all my animal pets: 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5 hens, 2 ducks and 1 guinea pig. I hope, one day, to own a small dwarf goat. When I’m not teaching or caring for my animals, I love to see what treasure are in thrift stores and Goodwill stores.
