Erin (she/her) is Puddletown’s Assistant Head of School. She’s been volunteering as a parent since 2013 and working as a staff member at Puddletown since 2017. She is a former therapist to children and families. Erin has an MS in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark Graduate College and a BA in Political Science from Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University. It was at Lewis and Clark where her interest in Montessori sparked, and she graduated knowing that she really wanted any of her future children to attend a Montessori program or school. As soon as she met Sam and Andrea, then the lovely teaching staff at Puddletown, she knew this was where she wanted her kids to stay, and for as long as possible. She wishes for and wants to work toward the Montessori experience being available to all children and interested families. Erin has a long history in research (marketing and scholarly), making her inquisitive, efficient and organized. She’s slowly run a marathon and many halves, played roller derby competitively across the country, and now is well practiced at home improvement projects, singing camp songs and playing elaborate rounds of charades with her three fantastic children (all Puddletowners) and thespian-at-heart husband, Eddie.

Our Department of Education blueprint for reentry is here. Our protocols for Covid-19 in our preschool and elementary program can be found here.
