Who is Jocelyn Dionne?

I am affectionately known as the “Knowledge Giver”.  I am the sage of early education. I reach, teach, educate, share, and empower professionals looking to create and improve transformative learning spheres. and impact the lives of future generations. 

 

A Georgia Peach by way of Lithonia, GA, Jocelyn Dionne is the oldest of 3 siblings. Living the single life without biological children of her own, Jocelyn is an aunt of 5 nieces and 2 nephews whom she loves dearly. She is currently a longtime resident of Norcross, GA. The genesis of her passion to transform the lives of young children, families, and life learners began with her mother.

 

"Growing up in Lithonia during the early 90's, my mother was a community leader and early educator. She was a stay-at-home mom, home learning provider. She was a mother for mothers, a nurse for children in her care, a shoulder to cry on, a confidant, a friend, mom of 3, and dedicated wife.

 

I can remember growing up, having 15 kids running around in our yard playing plus younger children preschool age. The children in her care were like siblings and our best friends. Our house was the house everybody knew "Mrs. Diane and Mr. Joey”.

 

Our home was where love, care, education, and restoration abided. Young teen moms, married mothers, and parents would just sit at my mother's feet for wisdom and advice or just for good conversations. She was quite young herself, but her wisdom, love, understanding, care was beyond her years.  I was amazed at her love and dedication in servicing the community. Early on, I knew her's was the mantel I wanted to carry forward as my life's legacy."
