Hummingbirds (two-year-olds): MARIE BURRIER

Teacher Marie has been involved with EPCP since her son first attended in 2013, working as a parent-teacher, a board member, and a key member of the fundraising team. She became teacher of the two-year-olds in 2016. Marie brings with her a cart-load of love, patience, and joy. She has one child currently attending EPCP, to be followed by his younger sister next year. Welcome, Teacher Marie!
Dragonflies (three- and four-year-olds): KATHLEEN HODGES

Teacher Kathleen first worked with Eugene's Parent-Child Preschool in 2014, when she was a classroom aide assigned by EC Cares to work with students who needed additional classroom support. Kathleen has more than thirteen years of experience working with children with a wide range of developmental needs. Her style of teaching is one that propagates, supports, and encourages individuality, positive self esteem and social competence. "I have much respect for children . . . birth to 5 are the most important years, as this is when children are building their foundation for future learning. I see all children as individuals and really want to nurture that in them through self acceptance and acceptance of others."
