Katherine Brown, Director/Teacher: Katherine has been connected to Little Peaks Preschool since serving on its first Board of Directors, sending her two daughters to the program, and teaching there from 1997-2003. She earned a BA in Art History from Middlebury College and an MSEd from SUNY Potsdam. She taught grades K-6 in public schools for 17 years, but always hoped to come back to Little Peaks. Katherine loves the pure joy of learning and the sense of wonder that is present in 3 and 4 year olds. It is enlightening (and often more fun) to see the world through a preschooler's eyes.
Kaycie D'Auria, Teacher: Kaycie brings close to 30 years of experience working with young people in outdoor and experiential education as well as diversified small organic farming. She is inspired by the internal magic that children experience when they play and work with each other and connect with the natural world. Kaycie also brings a love of working with wool into our classroom through hands-on projects, and aims to free the unique music that each child has within through song and movement. Kaycie has a BA from Hampshire College, with a focus on outdoor and experiential education.
Anita Sayers, Teacher: Anita has been at the heart of Little Peaks since the beginning, serving as a teacher for 27 years. She has a deep understanding of the learning that takes place during the preschool years. Anita is always ready to follow a child's lead in imaginative play, and she adds her own probing questions to stretch the child's learning. She takes a particular interest in connecting children to the seasons of the natural world.
Peg Wilson, Spanish Enrichment Teacher: Peg has been a student of Spanish since forever; holding a degree in the language from SUNY Geneseo. Additionally she has studied in Spain and Guatemala and enjoyed travel in Costa Rica, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Recently retired from 17 years as the Elementary Spanish teacher at Keene Central, she is very happy to be back at Little Peaks sharing her love of language with these enthusiastic learners.
