Louise was a Lead Preschool Teacher at Sandwich Children's Center in 2018/2019 and returned in August of this year. Previously she taught at Community Nursery School in New York since 2013. She feels privileged to have had the opportunity to share experiences with early learners for the past 14 years in New York, Miami and Washington, DC. She possesses a Master of Arts degree from New York University's Steinhart School of Education and a B.S. degree in Public Relations from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications.

In her free time, Louise likes to garden, hike, sing, kayak, sail and be a stand-up paddleboard instructor. She also revels in a good book and a nap under a tree.
Steve moved to Sandwich to embrace small town life. When he's not working at Town Hall as the Deputy Town Clerk/Tax Collector, he helps keep the SCC financial records in good shape. Steve's hobbies include reading and playing in the woods with his tractor.
