Welcome to Valley View Preschool: Home of the Littlest Spartans! My name is Jen Fischer, and I am one of the classroom teachers here. I am originally from Aurora, Ohio near Cleveland and attended Miami UnIversity. I have had the honor of teaching my entire career at VV beginning in 1996 at Germantown Elementary. At that time, I worked with students who had multiple handicaps in grades K-5 for my first five years. I am beginning my 18th year keeping busy and having fun in prek. My husband and I have four children [Kyle (20), Michael (18), Elizabeth (15), & Madelyn (12)], four cats, and one dog that wants to eat the cats. Life is always exciting!.
Some of my favorite preschool items are:
- Songs: Dance, Freeze, Melt by Eric Litwin & Dino Stomp by Koo Koo Kanga Roo
- Musical Groups: Koo Koo Kanga Roo & Classic Wiggles
- Color: glitter [I belive it IS a color]
- Story: Widget by Lyn Rossiter McFarland
I am very grateful for all the memories and laughs we make daily here at Valley View Preschool… Home of the Littlest Spartans

At home, I love to spend time with my family and my pets. I am married to Mr. Eshbaugh and we have a 2 year old named Hudson and an 11 year old named Wyatt. We have a dog, 3 cats, and a turtle.

Speech & Language Pathologist
It has been my pleasure to serve the students of Valley View Schools for the past 24 years. I will be working with the 3 to 5-year-old Preschoolers who attend our 1/2 day classes, 4 days per week. My job is to assess, diagnose, and do therapy with students whose speech and language difficulties make it difficult for them to access our preschool curriculum. I also provide interventions for our typically developing preschoolers when the teachers think some extra help is needed with their speech/language skills. All of our preschoolers participate in a weekly language/literacy lesson that can be part of their therapy, interventions and/or enrichment. But they all think they are just having fun!!
This will be my third year of teaching preschool at Valley View. I was born and raised in Germantown. I graduated from Valley View in 2012. I graduated in December 2016 from Kent State University where I majored in Early Childhood Education and was also a member of the Kent State football team. My teaching style is fun, open and welcoming where children can be creative and explore. I believe a teacher must be enthusiastic, energetic, caring and positive.
- Food: Pizza, wings, hibachi
- Ways I spend free time: Watching sports, spending time with friends & family, golfing
- Color: Blue
