Meet Our Staff

Jenn Martin, Teacher
Mrs. Martin has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Cabrini College in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. She began her teaching career teaching Pre-Kindergarten and then Kindergarten. She took some time off to start a family then went back to teaching Preschool. 
She taught a two year old class and a three year old class at the Tot Spot in Pottstown and also became the Director of the Preschool. She is very active in her children's elementary school.  She currently resides in Bechtelsville with her husband, Rod and sons, Matthew and Ryan. She enjoys scrapbooking, the beach, and being with her family.
I believe learning should be fun. Laughter and humor should occur regularly.There is no greater feeling then seeing a child's excitement when they accomplish a certain task or discover something new. I also feel it is always important to maintain an encouraging attitude with all students at all times. It is my duty as an educator to inspire a child to work to his/her full potential. 
Valorie Rodgers, Teaching Assistant
Mrs. Rodgers started with FCNS as a board member over 15 years ago.  This fall will be her 12th years as a teacher assistant.  She works with both the 2 and 3-day classes.  She taught Sunday School classes for several years, and is also currently employed at New Hanover-Upper Frederick Elementary School.

She currently resides in Perkiomenville with her husband and has five grown children, four of which attended FCNS. Her favorite thing to do is spend time with her family and has always been very active in her children’s activities and the community. She enjoys the beach and the mountains.

 She is very passionate about her work here at FCNS.  She believes that learning should be fun and exciting.  She hopes that each child will develop a love for learning that will last a lifetime.

Jill Hendricks, Playgroup Teacher



Mrs. Jill Hendricks has taught the playgroup at FCNS for 6 years now. She taught Sunday School at Frederick Church and continues to teach Treasure Hunters at Butter Valley Community Church where she and her family now attend.

She resides in Barto with her husband Mike and four children. Jill and her husband have been foster parents since 2012 and truly love children of all ages.  She is active in her church, school and community and volunteers at The Bally Community Center an outreach to children in the area. 

She has a culinary arts degree and works part time at Frederick Living in the Dining Service Dept. assisting the pastry chef and other chefs. She enjoys spending time with her family, baking, bicycling, hiking, gardening and any artistic crafts. 

I believe it is the sweet simple things in life that children treasure most, the beauty of a butterfly and the wonder of creation. The happiness one feels when they make a new friend and the need to belong, feel special and loved. The playgroup is a time for all of that and is a stepping stone for children and parents to see the joys and excitement of a classroom setting.
