A teacher’s dream fulfilled


Native Baltimorean Sabernia D. Fresnel is a graduate of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Towson State University. After receiving a bachelor ‘s degree in education, she spent eight years as a classroom teacher in the Baltimore City Public School System.

Fresnel’s experience as a teacher planted the seeds of public service and a passion for children bloomed within her. She discovered a love of mentoring, which led to an administrative role as a Title I Specialist for the school system. Shortly thereafter, her dreams became reality when she opened her own childcare center, Milestones Children’s Center.

With teaching experience and a Master’s degree in Human Resource Development and Educational Leadership, Fresnel aims to educate, empower and nurture children through her beloved Milestones Children Center.

Each year the center’s staff of sixty educators serves more than 1,000 children ranging from infants to school age. The programs run year-round and include summer camp.

The Baltimore County center will host a “Back to School Fall Festival” on September 18, 2015 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Baltimore City location serves school age children and includes an after school program between September and June, as well as summer camp. In addition, there is a partnership with Leith Walk Elementary/Middle School currently serving three hundred children.

Recently, Fresnel and her husband Jean-Claude Fresnel, Jr. launched a family fun center, Jumping Jamboree. Through Jumping Jamboree, they hope to provide a place for safe, nurturing family-friendly opportunities. Jumping Jamboree is open to the public Monday through Sunday from 10 to 12. Also, schools, childcare centers and church groups are welcome for team building activities, physical education and parties. More information is available at jumpingjam.com

Committed to establishing a balanced and happy home life while fulfilling her career, Fresnel attributes her success to God, who she believes bestowed gifts upon her to fulfill both desires. She hopes Jumping Jamboree can assist others in finding equal success and balance in their home life and careers.

Fresnel is the mother of three beautiful children, Reagan, Miles and Braxton. She is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; Upsilon Epsilon Omega Chapter; and First Mt. Olive Freewill Baptist Church.
