Program Staff

Mosaic is managed by 3-4 program staff (Program Director and Program Assistants). We also utilize parent volunteers, enrichment program teachers, and community arts and enrichment organizations to provide the daily enrichment classes. Any questions or concerns about the program should be directed to Mosaic staff members at mosaic@ps20.org.

Mosaic is a program of the PS 20 PTA. Its oversight is by the After School Committee and the PTA Executive Board.

Jestina Eubanks

Director

I am Jestina Eubanks and I’m the Program Director for Mosaic. I have been a member of the P.S. 20 family for the past year and I am excited to return with even better programming for our students. My education background is in Public Administration and Non-profit Management which has given me the experience to work with Elected Officials and childcare programs. I have been working with after school and summer camp programs for the past 6 years. My passion for working with children and programming became apparent from my service with AmeriCorps. As an education leader and advocate, I believe that it takes a village to raise a child and learning comes from all aspects of life.

Being from the island of wood and water, Jamaica, I love traveling and live life by my favorite book, Oh, The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss. Traveling to a new country each year helps me to appreciate my culture. Meister Eckhart said it best: "And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” In other words, having the drive to step outside one’s comfort zones and think outside the box. As a risk-taker, it’s starting something new and trusting in the process. Trust in the magic of Mosaic!

Program Assistants

Shameeka

My passion is to be a great educator inspiring youth to go above and beyond. I have been working with afterschool programs and summer camps for the last two years and have loved every minute of it. I love working with kids and trying to understand their needs. Brad Henry once said, "a good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning".

Karina

I'm Karina Martinez and I am happy to be part of the P.S. 20 family. Working with children for the last few years has been made me into a dedicated, determined, and hardworking role model! Growing up I was told "Siempre tienens que ser buen estudiante para que el dia de manana seas algo" which means, you always have to be a good student so when tomorrow comes along you will be something. I intend to teach students that they should always go after what they want in life with a little push and lots of ambition. Not because no one believes in you, but because you are not the only one fighting. Some days are going to be harder than other days but the goal is to always push yourself.

Jodian

I'm Jodian and I was born in Jamaica West Indies. I’m very excited to be a part of P.S. 20. I love working with kids and it's been my passion since my teen years. I currently have a B.S. from John Jay College of Justice. In the future I would love to pursue my Masters in Education. I enjoy traveling the world and experiencing different cultures as well as trying different foods. One of my goals is to see how children are being educated throughout the world and how I can get involved by helping them achieve their goals.

Edy

Hi I’m Edy Jean! I have been working with kids of all ages at after school and summer programs since I was 16. According to Lady Bird Johnson, Former First Lady of the United States, “Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.” I always wanted the world to be a better place and to see that happen, you have to show the younger generations the correct path. I can’t wait to be a part of the P.S. 20 family!
