Meet Our Teachers

The George School Children’s Center faculty is dedicated to helping very young learners grow and explore their world and themselves. Our teachers, many of whom have taught at the center for a long time, share a passion for working with young children and, thanks to a low student-teacher ratio, develop close bonds with and a keen understanding of each youngster in their care.

We invite you to come for an admission tour so you can meet these caring individuals in person and see if they are the right teachers, mentors, guides, coaches, and inspiration for your child.

“I have formed lifelong relationships with many of my students. There is no better experience than bumping into a young adult who smiles and greets me by name. While I stand there trying to figure out who they are, they start regaling me with stories of our experiences together—turning over rocks and finding bugs, following animal tracks in the snowy field, rolling down the hill, collecting sticks, balancing on a fallen tree, or simply sitting together reading a book. These brief interludes often end with a hug, and I leave knowing I have had the privilege of touching a child’s life forever.”

“George School’s spacious grounds, peaceful surroundings, and friendly staff and students remind me of the farm I grew up on and make it easy to drive to work. Being a part of the children’s center is exciting and rewarding. For 15 years, I have worked in a childcare setting with infants to 6-year-olds, and it is pure joy to see the children learn, explore, and grow throughout the year.”

Linda Caldwell
Pre-K Assistant Teacher

“Having worked in childcare for 39 years, including owning and operating a small family-run day care, I chose George School because of its friendly environment and the love shown to the children here. I especially enjoy watching the excitement in a child’s face when they learn something new and believe that children learn best when they are learning through play.”

Caren Cronin
Pre-K Lead Teacher
BS Indiana University of Pennsylvania

“As a George School parent, I am thrilled to join the staff family here and to be part of a childcare experience unlike any I have had in more than 25 years of teaching. The campus is an extension of our school, from the woods to the horses to the George School students themselves. Children’s center students have so many exciting opportunities for learning through play.”

Cynthia Hainsworth
Young Toddler Assistant Teacher
Preschool Child Development Associate Credential

“Working at the George School Children’s Center is wonderful. Since I assist in all four classrooms, I enjoy getting to know all the children, helping them to learn, and watching them grow throughout the year. The beautiful campus offers many opportunities for the children to explore and play.”

Taylor Johnson
Young Toddler Lead Teacher
AA Bucks County Community College

“I always knew I wanted to work with kids and coming to the George School Children’s Center was like coming home, a place where colleagues and families make you feel welcome and appreciated. The children’s center is a very hands-on environment. I look forward to learning and growing with the children each and every day.”

Becky Jones
Older Toddler Assistant Teacher

“I have had the pleasure of being part of the George School family and of playing and building relationships with many children, and I look forward to many more years on this beautiful campus.”

Susy Lake
Young Toddler Assistant Teacher
Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Child Development Associate Credential

“Since high school, I have had a passion for working with young children. When I came to the children’s center, I started as a Pre-K teacher but returned to teach young toddlers after having my own children. Over the years, I’ve seen numerous infants later stroll by as high school students. I admire how the center encourages hands-on learning, rather than sitting at a table with worksheets, and look forward to watching each child’s excitement when they achieve something and proudly show you.”

Sherri Schechner

BA Kean College of New Jersey

“The GSCC represents quality learning, support, and a diverse community. In my 20-plus years of early childhood instruction, I have taught preschool and all-day kindergarten. Now I am enjoying the different challenges of working in the infant room, where I get to be a part of children’s first milestones and help nurture, guide, and LOVE them.”

Moriah Tamburello
Pre-K Assistant Teacher
Preschool Child Development Associate Credential

“I want to have a positive impact on young lives, and the GSCC is one of the best environments to do so. It has not only allowed me to help enrich children’s lives, but has also enriched my own with new experiences, knowledge, and friendships.”

Karen Varian
Older Toddler Assistant Teacher
Infant, Toddler, and Child Development Associate Credential

“Being part of the George School community has been a wonderful journey. Playing with and teaching many exciting young children (and their families) and working alongside my co-workers has made it a fun learning experience. I look forward to our morning walks, when we can witness each season on our beautiful campus—and see the horses.”

Susan Wisniewski
Young Toddler Assistant Teacher
BFA Pratt Institute

“A lifelong Bucks County resident, visual artist, and author, I, like Picasso, believe that all children are artists, and I love nurturing a child’s artistic impulse. I have worked with children of all age-groups at the center and am inspired by my wonderful co-workers along with the children every day. We are truly a happy, healthy family. The standards of the GSCC are top-notch, and I am proud to be a small part of the early education and development of each child trusted to my care.”

Shannon Wolanski
Infant Assistant Teacher

“I have always yearned to work with children. After raising my boys as a single mother—and enjoying every bit of it—I looked for a place of employment where I could use my gifts to make a difference in the lives of children. At George School, I found a program with high standards, a great staff, and the same goals as I have—the development and safety of young children.”

Patty Yost

“Each day at the children’s center, we explore the campus and all of its changes, which provides a learning opportunity for adults and children alike. Appreciating nature and its beauty is a great part of our curriculum. How we love to find a butterfly or pick beans in the garden! I enjoy sharing in the awe with children, families, and other George School staff.”
