A note from Lisa:
I am delighted to be joining the St. Paul’s community. Over these past few months, I spent quite a bit of time on the school’s website, trying to imagine what it would look like in person, and in action. As the interview process began, I met so many lovely people, who clearly cared deeply for this neighborhood school. As I toured the school, I saw precious children engaging with caring teachers, vibrant art work on the walls, cozy nooks created by your parent association, and all I could think was, “Will I be lucky enough to become a part of this?”
I have been working with young children and their families for over twenty-five years. I have enjoyed teaching, supporting faculty, developing curriculum and staying current in my practice. It’s what I know, and what I love. It is with gratitude and great excitement that I accept the director position. I look forward to getting to know each child and their family, all of the faculty and support staff, and becoming part of your world. I will work hard to maintain all that you hold dear as we move forward together. I eagerly await meeting you all!
