Meet Our Teaching Team

Jenna K.

Orange Room

I love teaching because: I get to inspire, support, and bond with my students and their families. The opportunity to do all of those things brings me so much joy.

Teaching since: 2017

Stephanie G.

Yellow Room

I love teaching because: I love seeing the world through their perspective. I love embarking on the journey of self-discovery and I hope to inspire them during the process.

Teaching since: 2014

Mary S.

I love teaching because: of the unconditional love that the kids give me. I love seeing them grow and being the first one to teach them something new!

Teaching since: 2000

“My experience with Chalk has been amazing. My daughter started here at 2 years old and within 6 months, she was already making incredible progress, both academically and socially. She gets so excited for school, which is a great indication of how amazing her teachers are!”



“Thank you so much for taking care of our baby girl. She always smiles when she sees you at drop off and we can tell she is happy. We appreciate that more than we can put into words. ”


Christine H. -Bright Horizons Parent

“What an amazing place! CHALK is a beautiful facility with an amazing academic program. It's not play-based so if that's what you're looking for then you will want to look elsewhere. It's a sweet neighborhood school with wonderful, nurturing teachers! Your child will be well prepared for Kindergarten!”



“My appreciation for the teachers at Bright Horizons goes beyond the words that I can express. They extend themselves daily to our children's learning. Both of my sons were more than prepared to move forward in Kindergarten, thanks to Bright Horizons.”


Jessica F. -Bright Horizons Parent

“What a great place! Lovely teachers, fun learning atmosphere! Miss Jen and Nicole are amazing, nothing more, nothing less!! Miss Megan and Miss Karen are so warm and involved in the progression of the kids educations! Literally a solid educational and fun learning experience from Green room all of the way through. I highly recommended this place to anyone who has a kind kid!!”
