Meet Our Staff

“When the untapped potential of a student meets the liberating art of a teacher, a miracle unfolds.”

Mary Hatwood Futrell

“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.”

Confucius

“It takes a village to raise a child” might be considered cliché, but we sincerely view our students and their families as vital members of the greater Anne Brower School community. This community is not just precious to us, it also supports our students with the love and encouragement they need to truly thrive.

 

We'd love to get to know you, your little one(s), and your family. But first, we thought you might want to know a little more about us.

 

Below you’ll find a short introduction to the warm and caring people who make up The Anne Brower School. Please get in touch with us should you like additional information, or to schedule a tour of our campus.

Meet Our Teachers

As the saying goes, “It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.” What unites all of the teachers at The Anne Brower School have in common is their warm and open hearts. They really care about each one of their students and go out of their way to make every day special.

 

Our teachers are also distinguished educators who excel at making learning fun for little ones. They help the children sing, dance, and play their way into mastering the foundational knowledge and skills that foster a lifelong love of learning.

 

Below, get to know the wonderful educators who support our students during circle time, story time, nap time, play time, and any time.

“Teaching is the greatest act of optimism.”

Colleen Wilcox
