Like Meghan, Shelley has held the honorable title of Cape Ann Preschool Parent”, as well as teacher. She is licensed as an Early Childhood Lead Teacher, and holds a degree in Early Child Education from Lasell Junior College. Upon graduation in 1974, Shelley began her career teaching preschool in Hopkinton, MA before bringing her talents to Cape Ann Preschool in 1990. Shelley was honored to be welcomed into such a positive and relaxed environment in which children are encouraged to explore their unique creativity through play and art:

““I was particularly impressed with Cape Ann Preschool’s commitment to developing strong social skills and independent thinking at an early age. I’’m a firm believer in ‘getting back to basics’, so it’s a pleasure to be able to focus on teaching problem solving strategies, and helping children express their feelings in appropriate ways.””

Throughout the years, Shelley’’s passion for teaching has been evident to the hundreds of students who have passed through her classrooms. Originally from Pennsylvania, Shelley raised her two daughters in Gloucester, MA where she still enjoys life on the Annisquam River with her husband, Chris.
