Bittersweet transitions today as we announce that the amazing Laurie Nichols is moving on to a new job. We have been so fortunate to have Laurie as part of our team for the last few years. She has been instrumental in the further development of our Branching Out programs. She not only does a great job of leading outdoor lessons for the students at Pleasant Ridge Montessori every day, she also has redesigned the curriculum, she has created learning bins for teachers to use in the outdoors, and she has been at the forefront of our expansion of the program into a new school.

AND she is a great person to boot! We are sad to see her go, but also happy for her and her family as she ventures forth to a new opportunity.

We are also happy to announce that Sara Krehbiel has been hired to take over Laurie’s duties. Sara comes to Imago with loads of teaching experience both in the outdoors and in a classroom. Sara is excited to pick up all the fun projects that Laurie has so ably guided.
