Each of our classes are led by a certified head teacher and an assistant teacher. Meet our staff:
Cassandra Hotchkiss has brought a warm and nurturing personality to share with our little ones the past few years. She has an Early Childhood certificate, as well as degrees in English and fashion marketing. Aside from her work at School on the Green, she also worked as a substitute teacher for six years. As Head Teacher, “Mrs. H.” works diligently to make sure SOTG students are learning appropriately for their preschool age while having fun and making memories!
After serving in the fields of education and daycare for many years, our Assistant Teacher, Paula Grabowski, joined the School on the Green staff in 2004. “Mrs. G’s” genuine care and compassion for children touches the hearts of many students each year. Through her ingenuity and craftiness, Mrs. G brings fun and enjoyable art projects and creativity into the classroom. At the same time, she upholds many of the SOTG’s long-standing traditions that make the school so special. Mrs. G is a qualified program staff member and a valued member of the teaching team.
