Director I started with Extended Day in 2004 as a Wolfpack teacher (Slytherin Head Alum represent), and have grown so much with this program in those 13 years. I'm excited to move into my new role as AD and continue working in a more administrative capacity--but that doesn't mean I don't love working with the kids when I get the chance (which, luckily, is often!) At home, I'm a jewelry designer, food enthusiast, and bunny-mom who loves to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild ;)

Assistant Director Hi y’all! My name is Colette and I am excited to join the Lincoln Extended Day community as the new AD this Fall! I recently graduated Boston University with my masters in Social Work and although this is my first year working with Extended Day I have spent most of my career working with youth both as an educator and administrator. When I am not working, I like to express myself through writing, playing the ukulele (poorly) and going on hikes.

Lead Teacher of Beehive I am happy to say I'm returning to Beehive for my 9th year! I've come to Boston by way of Vermont, where I graduated from Green Mountain College with a BFA in painting and environmental studies. Aside from hanging out with really cool kids and doing creative projects with them, I spend my time listening to records, birdwatching, reading in a hammock, and planning adventures.

Wolfpack Teacher Head of Hufflepuff Hi there! I'm excited for the chance to return to my badger roots (Wisconsin born and raised --> Hufflepuff Head of House) this year with the Wolfpack! I've come by way of Wellesley College (BA in Philosophy) and an assortment of jobs which included everything from playing pipe organ to installing rooftop gardens. When not scheming about off-the-wall projects to lead, you can find me backpacking in the White Mountains, or reading anything by Ursula K Le Guin!

Lead Teacher of Wolfpack Head of Gryffindor House Unbelievably, this is my 15th year with Wolfpack! I feel as fortunate as ever to work with the incredible people I do- adults and kids alike. I strive to model kindness and empathy in the face of challenges, both here and at home, and I am thankful that everyday brings the opportunity to try again/do better next time! When I’m not here, I’m usually reading with my two boys, Hugo And Leon, spending time outdoors, or in my studio to draw & paint.

I once got to play the title role in my favorite musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I also love ocelots and am a self-identified Ravenclaw.

Sharktank Teacher I joined the Extended Day as a sub, but now I'm stoked to now be a part of the staff! My work history includes experiences in outdoor adventure and environmental education. Recently, I graduated Lesley University with a masters in Community Arts focusing on Environmental Art. When not leading messy science experiments with Sharktank, I work as a freelance movement artist and yin yoga teacher.

Beehive Teacher Hey! This is my first year at Lincoln Extended Day & I could not be more excited. I'm a recent graduate of Bennington College with a concentration in early childhood education and computer science. In the past, I have also been a drama counselor and a French teacher. When I'm not teaching, I love finding new coffee shops, playing Pokémon, and trying to train my cat, Goblin.

Lead Teacher of Sharktank Administrative Coordinator I am thrilled for my 14th year with the program! Every year is so different from the last. No two days have ever been the same! Before Extended Day, I studied Art History and Printmaking at Framingham State College. I am inspired every day by the kids I work with, and I strive to soak up life with the curious eye of a kid. I'm so proud to be part of this fantastic community, and I look forward to another great year at the Lincoln School!

Beehive Teacher Hello! My name is Annie and I'm super excited to be working with Beehive this year. Originally from Illinois, I just moved to Boston after finishing a masters in Comparative Literature.
