Our Teachers

The Falmouth Corner Preschool is staffed with two co-teachers. On a typical day, both teachers and one parent will be in the classroom, lending to an excellent student:adult ratio.

Heather Swisher

I am so happy to be a part of Falmouth Corner Preschool. I began teaching the 4+ Program in January 2012 and relished getting to know the school, the children, and their families.

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with BA in Elementary Education and a minor in Literacy. I taught Kindergarten and Reading in the Phoenix, Arizona public schools, and as I followed my husband's Naval career I've also taught Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool in Washington State and Italy.  My own children attended Cooperative Preschools, and in keeping with the co-op ethos, I have been and continue to be an active volunteer in each of their classrooms.

I love being immersed in the amazing and beautiful world of 3, 4- and 5-year olds. I especially enjoy supporting emerging literacy and math skills through play-based and hands-on activities. I strongly believe that children learn essential social, emotional, and cognitive skills through play. In my teaching, I strive to provide opportunities for children to learn to solve problems, take turns, practice flexibility, and develop empathy alongside the adults who love and support them.

I currently live in Cumberland with my husband, my daughter, son, and our St. Bernards. In my spare time I enjoy watching my children play hockey, gardening, reading, and spending time with my family.

Alice Outslay

I came to the Falmouth Corner Preschool with 15 years of Preschool classroom teaching experience and a genuine love of children.

I graduated from the University of Maine in Farmington with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduation, I taught for a year in Head Start and then continued my career at Pine Grove School in Falmouth. Each summer, I have had the opportunity to be the director of the Falmouth Community Programs Preschool Summer Camp. I have a specific interest in childhood fitness and I recently completed my Youth Fitness Certification. During the School year, I am fortunate to be a running coach for the Falmouth Elementary School Striders cross-country program.

I live in Lewiston with my husband, Scott, and our two dogs, Stella and Bailey. I am an avid runner and I love to practice yoga.
