Dan CullinanFounder & Lead Teacher
Dan’s ongoing emphasis in professional development sits in the realm of outdoor, play-based learning, emotional intelligence, and conflict resolution. This combined experience underscores Starbreak’s core commitment to being present for each individual child and their unique needs. Dan received his B.A. in Geology and Mathematics from Lawrence University with additional units of study in psychology and childhood education.
As a mother to 5 and 11 year old daughters, Ty understands the importance of these formative early childhood years. We are deeply grateful to have her join our staff for the 2018 school year and beyond!
Her teaching experiences have fueled a strong belief that combining outdoor, play-based learning experiences with the core teachings of the Montessori and Waldorf methods provides a rich educational experience and reinforces the benefits of slowing down to maintain that innocent “sense of wonder” to help children thrive. Ginger earned her B.A. in Early Childhood Education at The Evergreen State College in 2014 with a focus on sustainability.
