Dear Parents,
You will recall, preschool lead teachers’ announcements were made in June, and it was shared then that we would be actively hiring several new assistants for the fall. After completing the hiring process this month, we have an excellent preschool team in place. As we get ready to kick off the new school year, Jana Bush, preschool and school age coordinator and I are very pleased to make the following announcement regarding the 2019-2020 preschool assignments:
- The Gingerbears will be led by teacher Paula Morrill, who will be teamed this year with Natasha Wilber, who worked previously at Magic Moments.
- The Snapdragons teacher will be Linda Simmons who will be joined by new hire Autumn Lanoue. Autumn comes to us as she works toward finishing up her Associates degree in ECE from NHTI. Autumn did her internship with Teri Ann back at Alton Central School in 2016. Autumn will be a great addition to the group.
- It was previously announced that the Little Loons (our new additional full day classroom at the Center) will be taught by Isabella Young. This remains the plan, but please note upon Isabella’s return after Labor Day, she comes back as Isabella DiMambro and will be teamed with Angela Christian. Angela has been a summer staff member for the past three years and we are thrilled she is joining us full time, having recently completed her degree from Franklin Pierce University.
- Teacher Melissa Nisbet and Heidi Sizemore will continue to be our team in the Dragonflies room.
- Elizabeth Swett and Jaime Balser will also begin their second year together in Playful Penguins.
- Our Magic Moments preschool classroom at LRTC will be led again by Tanya Mills. Tanya’s new part time assistant is planned to be announced prior to their first day September 9.
We are looking forward to a great school year ahead!
All the best, Teri Ann
