Sense of Community

"Clinton Path has the small community feel that we were looking for; the teachers have made every effort to get to know us and our son.  I love that they can spend lots of time outside and the curriculum provides interesting investigations and also responds to student interests."

-Sarah V, mom to W, current student

Terry Gould

Interim Director

Terry has been with the school for over 25 years, first as a substitute, then lead teacher and then as Director.  She recently retired from full-time work at CPP, but she couldn't resist filling in the Interim Director role while we search for a new Director.  Terry designed our CPP logo, bringing together her love of Matisse, the Fibonacci numbers and the natural world.  Terry's warm presence creates a nurturing, and stimulating environment where your child benefits from her love of yoga, gardening and art.  On each student's birthday, Terry draws a special picture on his or her envelope and encourages all the students to make birthday cards.

Ruby Pendergast Teacher

Ruby has always enjoyed working with families with young children and loves the humor and spontaneity of teaching preschoolers. In earning her BA in Sociology at Clark University, she studied the history of families and identity development. Ruby values the involved community that parent co-ops draw, and has experience working alongside parents in the classroom. She hopes to help Clinton Path continue to be an exciting place for children where they feel respected and build the confidence to challenge themselves. Sharing stories, making art, and dancing together are some of her favorite activities in the classroom. Outside of school, she enjoys visiting the arboretum, thrifting, and listening to live music.


Emily Reale

Emily has been a part of the CPP community for 5 years, first as a parent to one of our students and a year ago she joined our team of teachers.
