Founding Directors

Kristin Marshall and Jenna Eddy

 

Kristin Marshall and Jenna Eddy first met while teaching at a pre-school in downtown Saratoga Springs, NY. The two taught together for three years before chasing their dreams of starting a school of their own.

Both women have a strong background in education and years of experience working with children.

Kristin has an undergraduate degree from The College of Saint Rose in childhood education. She furthered her education by attending graduate school at Union College and earned a MAT degree in English. After graduating from Union, she went back to school at The College of Saint Rose and earned an MSEd in literacy with a certificate in special education. Kristin’s education gave her the opportunity to gain experience teaching in a variety of classroom settings. She taught middle school and first grade at a Charter School in Schenectady, and co-directed a pre-school program in Menands, before teaching in Saratoga Springs.

Kristin is a kind, gentle person that nurtures and brings warmth into the classroom. Her love for reading and all things creative is shared with the children through her lessons.

Jenna has an undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Cortland in early childhood and childhood education. After graduating, she spent a year as a substitute teacher in Saratoga and Washington County before teaching pre-school in downtown Saratoga Springs. Jenna is a native to Saratoga and has deep roots in this city.

Jenna is loving and adventurous, and always brings a sense of fun and humor to the classroom. Her love of the outdoors and active nature is shared with the children through her lessons.
