“The curiosity of small children is infectious. The best reward is when they sparkle with pride after learning something new. It fills my heart to be able to combine teaching with the special nurturing that they need at this very precious age.”
Assistant teacher, 4 year old class
After earning her BS in business and working for many years in the high tech area of international sales and marketing, Crissy stepped away to be home more with her children. During that time she worked as a substitute teacher for pre-k through 6th grade, though her favorite time was spent in the preschool classes at Hollis. She earned the NH certification for early childhood education and joined the preschool in 2017 as an assistant teacher. She is dedicated to understanding each child and adjusting her pace and approach accordingly. Crissy is known for being approachable and open, someone the kids can count on to laugh along with the funny little happenings each day.
Crissy has lived in Hollis for more than 20 years, currently with her husband Rob and their two teenage children Rob and Hallie. They love traveling as a family, with Costa Rica and Italy topping their list of favorite destinations.
