Administration & Staff

Wood Acres provides a well balanced faculty and staff who embody youthful talent and enthusiasm together with depth of experience. 

Wood Acres teachers come from all over the United States as well as across the ocean.  They have been marine biologists in San Diego and trained as teachers in Europe.  They are grandmothers and newlyweds.  They have Southern accents and speak Spanish as beautifully as English.  What knits them together is a passion for teaching, a respect for children, and a commitment to learning excellence. Couple the unique talents of our teachers with Wood Acres’ low pupil-teacher ratio and you have the perfect balance for successful teaching and learning.
