      Jaime Moran

      Owner

      Jaime has always known that she wanted to work with children.  While working towards her high school and college diplomas, she worked at a daycare with special needs adults, and as a paraprofessional working with autistic children.  Jaime was  an elementary school teacher, teaching third grade for one year and Kindergarten for six years.  In 2009, she received her Master’s Degree from Southern Connecticut State University in Elementary Education and holds a teaching certification from the State of Connecticut.  She left teaching to raise her three children and pursue a dream of having her own school.  Building Over the Rainbow into an accomplished learning institution is equal to the joy of raising her children.

      “I feel so lucky and honored to be able to share my passion and vision with the families of Over the Rainbow and the children of our future.  Together, with my awesome and dedicated teachers we will change the world, one child at a time.”
      – Jaime
