FOUNDER/CEO:

Jolandra Houston

First and foremost, thank you for visiting my website. As seen above, I am the Founder/CEO of Little GERMinators, but also known as Mrs. GermBuster. Starting out, my journey has always been centralized around the education field. I received my Bachelors in Family and Consumer Science with a concentration in Early Intervention and later pursued my Masters in Early Childhood Education. When becoming an educator in the school system I was constantly running into an issue of students not being aware of the use of proper hygiene practices when coughing, sneezing and blowing their nose. After an epiphany moment brought by a little young fellow in my class by way of a nice, wet sneeze to the face, I decided to act on what has now become my passion; teaching germ prevention, hygiene practices to students early on. It became more of an influence as I decided to advance in my Master studies and conduct research on teaching children germ prevention as a result of a behavior change. As time went on, I got an opportunity to pilot my idea of designing a hands-on S.T.E.A.M. based lesson to teach children and encourage children's interest through a fun concept using targeted intervention activities. I am passionate about children and teaching, especially teaching children early on in order to lay the foundation for future positive outcomes. I am a true believer in the self-motivating slogan "Teach One, Teach Many," because by teaching one individual, can present opportunities for them to share their knowledge with many others, which can potentially lead to a continuous cycle of learning. I look forward to coming to your schools and teaching your students how to become Little Germinators and help decrease the spread of "Germy, Germy" through fun, memorable experiences, and activities.
