Hello Everyone. My name is Katia, I am a born and raised Brooklynite and will be the Assistant Director for Trail Blazers PLG Day Camp.

JOSE, PROGRAM SPECIALIST

SCHOOL: PS 705

Hola! My name is Mr. Jose but people know me by my nickname, Chief. With a background in education, mathematics and a love for nature, it’s no wonder that I have been in Trail Blazers for almost 3 years and part of the Under One Sky family for 1.5 years. I truly believe in education and the six Trail Blazer values we strive to demonstrate and practice with our kids at Under One Sky. Like I tell my students – If I tell you, you will forget. If I teach you, you will remember. If I involve you, you will learn. Adios😊

DEJA, ENABLER

SCHOOL: PS 705

Greetings, my name is Deja Lebron and I’ve been an employee with Trail Blazers for one year now. Prior to working with Trail Blazers , I had the wonderful opportunity of working for Lefferts Garden Montessori school for two years. At LGM I’ve learned that independence is a child’s most important work, and we all aimed to create and maintain an environment where the children can grow and thrive while exploring. The same applies for trailblazers and that’s exactly why I was passionate about Joining the Trail Blazers team. I’m a very adventurous person, I love outdoor adventures, I love exploring natures habitats, I enjoy camping, reading, and family outings. I look forward to meeting all the new children and parents this year!

JANNAH, ENABLER

SCHOOL: PS 705

I’ve been working with children since I was in the 7th grade. My JHS had extra curricular activities and we would leave school during our health period and help out at the community day care center. In my youth, I developed a passion for kids that continued on throughout my adulthood that lead me to majoring in child psychology in college and many years of experience in child care. I take joy and pride in interacting with each child as if they were my own teenage son.
