Our Teachers

The Falmouth Corner Preschool is staffed with two extradordinary teachers who are the epitome of patience and grace. On a typical day, both teachers and one parent will be in the classroom, lending to an excellent student/adult ratio.

Ms. Gina Lead Teacher

Ms. Gina is a certified early childhood educator with a Master’s Degree from Goddard College in VT and an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Simmons College in MA. She comes to us from Roots and Fruits Preschool, where she taught and was also the Director. Unfortunately, Roots and Fruits closed during the pandemic, but Ms. Gina is excited to have found the Falmouth Corner Preschool Community! Ms. Gina began her professional career as a birth doula, childbirth educator, and parent support professional which turned into a love for teaching young children. She loves to weave, knit, cook, read, and be out in her garden.

A note from her: "I have always been passionate about supporting youth and families. I passionately believe in the power of working with children and family in the younger years when our children's brains are developing so rapidly. I believe in the power of teaching children by supporting their own curiosity and imagination and laying a strong foundation of social-emotional learning, such as supporting self-awareness and building empathy. I also believe in the power of play as an amazing vehicle for deep, authentic learning! I know we will have so much fun together."

 

Ms. Emily Co-Teacher

Ms. Emily is an early childhood educator with a Master's of Business Administration and also a Bachelor's Degree of Science from Providence College in Rhode Island. She has spent over fourteen years in the field of student affairs in higher education. Ms. Emily comes to us as an alumni parent of the co-op after staying home to raise her family. She enjoys gardening, crafting, going to the library, eating ice cream, playing with Legos, and exploring nature with her family. Her favorite color is blue, and she enjoys watching the TV show Bluey (check it out if you haven’t already).

A note from her: “I cherish the opportunity to reunite with the Falmouth Corner Co-op Preschool community! My career in college student development emphasized the critical importance of providing a foundation for success in early education. In my role as assistant teacher at FCP, I thoroughly enjoy contributing to each student’s growth and exploration in a nurturing and creative learning environment. To be able to share in the preschoolers’ joy and wonder is the greatest reward!”
