Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Joshua M. Du Pré
Born in Bartow, FL, I am delighted to be part of the Emerald Shores community. First, I earned my Bachelor's of Arts (History) in 2008 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Next, Master's of Arts in History at Jacksonville State University (also Alabama). Lastly, I have worked briefly with the Texas State Capitol, at a Atlanta based Community College, and various other business related jobs until last year. I'm incredibly happy to be part of your children's days and hope to create an exciting learning environment for them where they feel valued and engaged in their learning, while also preparing them for Middle School, as that transition can be quite a shock to some.
My wife is an Assistant Manager at Publix (Churchill Square) and lots to help others as well. We have two children, Aria (4) and Gideon (almost a year old). We also have two dogs, in Saban and Toto. Some of our favorite things are visiting new locations, like various beaches throughout the south, and even tiny little towns like Hudson, FL, and Daphne, AL, to see what they have to offer. This is one of the best countries on earth. If we don't take a few moments to appreciate our surroundings, we will end up losing most of it.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me. It will be a good year and your kids will have learned a lot.
