Welcome back Liz! Liz first joined the the Co-op as a parent in 2001 when her older son Andrew was in Janet’s class. Then when her son Will was enrolled in Just the Two of Us, Liz stepped in as the teacher in 2003. Liz moved “upstairs” to teach the 4 afternoon class in 2005. For the next nine years she taught Pre-K in the 4 morning, 4 afternoon and 3 morning multi-age classes. After pursuing other interests in both the public schools and the business world, Liz has come back to us to keep everything running smoothly in the office.
Susan is a CPA who has worked in public accounting for 11 years. Both of her children have attended the Co-op. She is happy to be back at the Co-op serving as the bookkeeper for the past four years. In her role, she deposits all the checks (tuition, lunch bunch field trips, etc.) that come in, as well as write checks to pay all of the school’s bills.
