Meet Our Staff!

A Premier Learning teacher is a nurturer as well as an educator, someone who encourages learning through exploration, and who understands the balance between what a child needs to feel safe and what she requires to reach her potential. Your child’s teacher is your partner. At Premier Learning, families and teachers work together --celebrating successes, navigating challenges, and communicating daily about your child’s achievements and goals.
