Michelle Winter, Glenbrook’s New Educational Director

We are excited to announce that Michelle Winter, a long-time teacher and valued member of the Glenbrook community will be our new Educational Director. Michelle’s expertise in Early Childhood Education including her nearly 18 years of combined experience teaching pre-school and first grade make her a highly qualified candidate for the Director position.

Michelle began teaching at Glenbrook first as a teacher to the Super Stars class and since then, she has taught the Busy Bees and most recently, the Fantastic Frogs. As one of our Fantastic Frog parents noted, “Michelle is quick to identify and meet each child exactly where they are and come up with strategies if there is room for growth. She is passionate about learning through play, especially outside. [I] personally walked away from her class with so many ideas on how to be a better parent to [my child] and am so thankful for the interest she took in him and our family.  She is a creative problem solver and firmly believes that the whole family learns and grows together.”

Michelle has played an active role on Glenbrook’s Executive Board as a teacher and also as a parent. Glenbrook colleagues describe Michelle as a skilled educator who is knowledgable, collaborative, thoughtful, caring, and dedicated.

In Michelle’s words: “I’m thrilled to take on the role of Educational Director at Glenbrook this year. As Director, I am deeply committed to facilitating relationships between our parents, children and teachers. Now more than ever, I believe that we all need strong, supportive communities. I look forward to using my experiences as a Glenbrook parent and my background as an educator to foster just that and to provide each student with the individualized resources and engaging environment they need to best learn and grow.” 

In addition to her new role as Education Director, Michelle will continue to teach the Fantastic Frogs. To learn more about Michelle, please visit Our Family.

We are so happy to have you Michelle as we continue to learn and grow together!
