He has written and administered curriculum in many public elementary schools across Chicago. For over ten years, Jess has worked as a Studio Coordinator at Chicago Commons Association, fostering areas of the arts, curriculum and professional development. Oviedos work is inspired by the preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy and Reggio-Inspired educators in the U.S.

In this capacity, he helps to foster everyones best thinking by eliciting and later testing out ideas on extending childrens learning.
