Jenning A Prevatte, M.Ed.

Greetings! I'm Jenning Prevatte, a mother of two and an Associate Professor of Teacher Education at 

Red Rocks Community College in Colorado.

I'm also the Co-Director of its Teaching and Learning Center.
Teaching Strategies 

As a former early childhood teacher, I have a Master’s in Special Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education (ECE) from Arizona State University. (Go Devils!) 


I love supporting educators and providing coaching and consulting services through Teach Brilliantly.  


Teach Brilliantly advocates for a holistic approach to teaching that includes enhancing self-efficacy, resilience, and knowledge of effective teaching to provide the best learning environments in Early Childhood Education and Care and in Higher Education. 

Why Focus Only on ECE and Higher Education? 

Simple, these are the two areas of education that traditionally lack formalized training in teaching and learning. To teach in ECE or Higher Education a teacher isn’t required to have formal education and licensure like a K-12 teacher. 

Instead, they enter the field with a desire to teach and, in Higher Education, be a subject matter expert. In my 20 years of experience working in these two education arenas, I have seen teachers struggle to teach effectively, mainly because of a lack of foundational knowledge of effective teaching practices.  


Teach Brilliantly’s goal is to support ECE and Higher Education teachers to gain essential skills and knowledge to build their capacity to provide inclusive and effective learning environments through simple, effective, evidence-based practices.  

The future of education must include teachers who teach with compassion, teach from a strength-based perspective, and
engage in equity-mindedness.
