I have been the Coordinator of the Explorations program since the Fall of 2000. At that time the program served kindergarten-sixth grade and averaged 25 children per day. Currently, Explorations serves preschool-fifth grade and averages 70 – 75 children per day.
In my over 30 years of experience working in school-age programs I have run an adventure-based counseling program for inner-city youth; started and ran four school-based day care programs, and I have directed two state contracted school-age daycare programs in the state of Massachusetts. While living and working in Western Massachusetts, I earned my Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Massachusetts.
When I came to the Henry Barnard School, I had no idea that the warm, supportive environment, and children first attitude would keep me here all these years. I honestly feel that the Henry Barnard School is one of the finest elementary anyone could choose to send their child.
