Suzanne Jones

Hi! I'm Katie Huckleberry. I am married to my wonderful husband, Brian, and we have two amazing children, Aiden and Adley. They are the joy of our lives! We also have two dogs, a Golden Retriever named Stella and a Yorkshire Terrier named Peanut. On our free time as a family, we love to go on vacation, taking the dogs for walks, swimming, BBQing, and hanging out with family and friends.

I was born and raised in Rochester and have lived in Rochester my whole life graduating from John Marshall High School in 1998. I then went on and got my Associates Degree in Child Development. I have been working with children my entire life. I was a nanny, an Assistant Teacher at Children’s Place Daycare, Assistant Teacher at Kids Come First Daycare, owner and operator of my own in-home daycare for 8 years, and finally worked for the Rochester Public School District for the 6 years as a paraprofessional with all grades. My passion has always been working with the younger kids teaching them and watching them learn and grow into amazing kids! I am incredibly happy to be doing what I love and am excited to watch your children grow, learn, and prep them for kindergarten!

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in 1998. I have a double major in Psychology and English with a creative writing minor from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I have taught preschool at Kingdom Kids for 4 years specializing in preschool art and world exploration. I then substituted as a classroom paraprofessional in the Rochester School District for 3 years. I then accepted a position in the district working with developmental and cognitive disorders in children ages 5-9. I have had much training working with a variety of behaviors and special needs in this position for 3 ½ years. I am passionate about early childhood education and am excited to be part of Hilltop Beginnings Preschool!
