Stacey Palker

I live in Stamford with my husband, Todd, and two children, Sadie (11) and Aaron (9). Both go to Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy. Our children are hearing impaired and we work hard to advocate for other families that have children with special needs. We are very involved in Friendship Circle. I often wear a chef hat and cook with my friends at Children’s Circle. I love crafting, theater, travelling and trying new cuisines. I’m always up for an adventure with my family! We added a new member to our family recently, a pandemic puppy named Ori.

I have a BS from Syracuse University in Family Studies and a minor in Policy Studies, with a concentration on Urban Education Reform. I also have a MA from NYU in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Once my children were in school full time, I returned to teaching and have taught the older 4s/Pre-k for four years at Chabad preschools.

I believe children are magical. There is nothing more awesome than seeing a child work through a problem and seeing the look of wonderment when they solve it successfully. I am beyond excited to commence this Kindergarten program.
