Ms. Pam joins us this summer before she heads off to Ohio where her husband will attend medical school. Pam has worked with our Head of School for four years and has a natural gift for teaching, classroom management and curriculum development. Her classroom environments are governed by love and connection, learning and exploration, silliness and fun! We are thrilled to have her join us to support and train our preschool staff in these areas. On the weekends you will find Ms. Pam doing all things creative, exploring the outdoors with her dog (Poppy) and her husband (Jeff) and dreaming of Disneyland.

At preschool events Ms. Zoe is likely surrounded by students, dancing, playing or in a bounce house. On the weekends you will find her outside hiking, swimming, or just being amongst the flowers.
