Amy - I am a lead teacher in the Bunny Room. I have worked at WCP for over twenty six years. In that time, I have seen many children grow and blossom. I am truly proud to be a part of this preschool. I have a B.S. degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University. I have two adult daughters. One lives and works in Florida and the other is a sophomore in college. I live in Williamstown with my husband Steve, dog Baxter, and cats Tasha and Aash.
Cindy - I have been at WCP for 27 years. I started out as the cook, but realized that I wanted to be a teacher, so I took the required classes I needed to be a teacher. I have been in the Puffin Room since the day it opened almost 4 years ago. Working with toddlers is by far my favorite age to work with. I don’t think of the Puffins as just kids in my room; they are in my heart. I live in Williamstown and have a 32-year-old son. I am currently involved with a local non-profit that my family started 3 years ago, PopCares Inc.
Sally - I was born and raised in New York City. I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Political Science. After college, I hitchhiked with my husband, David cross country and settled in Williamstown with our son, Marley. I've been working at the preschool since before the cellular phone, the Internet and reality TV. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my 5 year old grandson, Theodore.
Amanda M. - I spent the majority of my childhood living in Williamstown. I attended Broad Brook Elementary and graduated from MGRHS in 1988. I earned my bachelors degrees in Psychology and Early Childhood Education from MCLA in 1998. I began working at WCP in August of 1998, so I am approaching my 17th year here. I have worked with all age groups, from infant to school age. I am currently a lead teacher in the Panda room.
Cari - I enjoyed my time in the Puffin classroom and now am gaining valuable experience with the preschool children. I am a floating teacher throughout all classrooms at Williamstown Community preschool. I graduated from Berkshire Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and transferred to Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a minor in Social Work. During my educational years, I completed several practicums, working with children from kindergarten through sixth grade. At another preschool facility I was a floater going from room to room gaining experience with children of all ages. In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and friends. I enjoy walking, hiking, and campfires during the cool summer nights. I am an animal lover and have rescued five animals over the last several years. We took in three cats and two dogs and there was truly never a dull moment when I was home. I will soon celebrate my two-year anniversary at WCP. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience.
Heather - I am a lead teacher in the Bear room. I started working at the preschool in April 2013 as a floater, though it feels like I've been part of the WCP family for much longer! I live in North Adams with my husband Ryan and our very spoiled cat Mazie. I graduated from MCLA double majoring in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. In September 2014 I got married at Jiminy Peak and in January 2015 we bought our first house! I absolutely love being a new homeowner, and in my free time I enjoy gardening, decorating, shopping, and spending time with family.
Kristy - I grew up in Adams and currently own a home in North Adams. In 2009, I started my Associates in Early Childhood Education and worked as a math tutor for first graders and a teacher's assistant in a Kindergarten classroom. In 2010, I was a Lead Preschool Teacher for two years until I decided to join the great staff here at Williamstown Community Preschool in September 2012! I graduated from Berkshire Community College with my Associates and am currently looking into UMASS for my Bachelors. I work mainly in the Bear and Tiger classrooms, though I do float to other rooms when needed and always look forward to the little ones smiles and funny things they have to say. In the summer I run the school age program, Camp Discovery. I took a semester of American Sign Language and enjoy using it at work with the children. I enjoy basketball and own a longboard, which I ride every now and then. One day I hope to become a Volunteer Firefighter and a foster parent.
Nicole - I am a teacher in the Bunny room I started working in the summer of 2015 as a substitute teacher and instantly fell in love with this profession. I am still attending school at BCC, and even though I haven’t been here for too long I feel as if I have always been a part of the WCP family. During my time, as a substitute I had the opportunity to work in every classroom but the Bunny room has always been my favorite. I have grown up and still currently live in North Adams, MA with my cat Smalls.
Susan - I was born and raised right here in Berkshire county. I currently live in North Adams. I have worked at Williamstown Community Preschool for twenty seven years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to work in many classrooms Infants through School age. I have always loved caring for young children, and I enjoy helping them grow and develop new skills at each age. I am very active in my church and also enjoy being part of the Relay for Life Leadership committee.
