Director Jacque HaunMy name is Jacque Haun and I am the school Director for Gateway Academy Mt. Pleasant, SC. Our school is on the corner of Johnnie Dodds Blvd. and Dragoon.

I have been fortunate to have been blessed with such a fun and rewarding career. I absolutely love working with the teachers, children and families here at Gateway Academy. There is no greater feeling in the world than being a positive influence for the people of community around me.

I began working with children immediately after high school and found this to be such a reward that I pursued a degree in Early Childhood. I began my employment with Gateway Academy in November 1999. I worked as an infant teacher and with in two years I moved into a management position and found this as my passion. I truly love to watch the children grow and thrive each day.

As for my family, I live in Summerville with my husband Shawn and our two boys, Shawn and Spencer. My husband Shawn is a firefighter for the City of Charleston and has found his reward in helping others as well. Shawn is fourteen and enjoys video games, karate and playing outside. Spencer is a very energetic six year old who loves to be in the middle of everything and full of life. He plays baseball and does karate also. We also have a pet turtle, Timmy who is ten years old, a Chihuahua, Zeus who is eleven years old and Molly, who is a one year border collie. While not here at school we enjoy our weekend going to the dojo, baseball games, playing outside and family cook outs.

My future here in Mt. Pleasant is to make each family who enters through our doors feel at home. By creating a home-like environment, I hope to establish lasting relationships with our families. We will inspire children to have fun while learning. Parents will have confidence that they have placed their children in the most capable hands and they will know that their children are safe and happy during the day.

I would love to have you join our family at the top preschool in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Please stop in anytime during the week for a visit. See you soon!
