Pre-3s and 3-5s Teacher

​Teacher Elise’s warm, calm, and engaging demeanor puts the children at ease, and the connection that she forms with each child lets them know that they are each an important part of their classroom community. She studied Psychology at Washington State University. Elise thoroughly enjoyed participating in co-op preschool as a parent for 13 years, the last 9 of which were spent at Wallingford. Elise believes in the co-op model because it supports families and allows children to learn through play in a safe and encouraging environment.
