Head Teacher

Philadelphia native Dana D. Jackson began her career in early childhood education in 1994 through volunteering at the Parent Infant Center. This experience led her to take classes at the Community College of Philadelphia, where she obtained an Associates degree in Elementary Education. After graduating from CCP, she attended Saint Joseph’s University, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2000. She taught for five years at Educare Learning Center, then taught Kindergarten in the Philadelphia School District starting in 2004. Her love for the Early Childhood field led her to Settlement Music School, where her goal as a lead pre-school teacher is to provide a safe, healthy, fun, and inviting environment in which every child is able to experience new things through play, building healthy relationships, and feeling proud of who they are.
