What brought you to The Common School?

I was an Associate Teacher in E1 for 3 years in the late 90s after finishing up in grad school.  About a decade or so later, when my husband and I became parents, we decided to send our daughter to The Common School.  Alexis started in the Blue Nursery in 2008 and graduated from E2 in 2017.  I am back at The Common School as the Business Manager and it is amazing to be back at a place I hold near and dear to my heart!

What do you like best about The Common School?

I love that The Common School offers education with a purpose.  Children are running up the walk way every day curious and eager to make an impact on their community.  The Common School is there to support and offer their students a safe place to explore and satisfy their curiosity.  I know from our own personal experience what a gem of a place this was for our daughter.  Thanks to The Common School in part, she is a more caring, nurturing, determined person and a learner.
