Assistant Teacher, Preschool

Teacher at GPS since 2011

7 Years of Teaching Experience


Yella was immediately drawn to the philosophy of the Golden Pond Way when she and her husband decided to enroll their son at Golden Pond School in 2008. Their family watched Nate blossom through his years at the school. We were thrilled when Yella decided to join the faculty in 2011 to pursue her love of teaching.

“I believe that Golden Pond’s play-based learning was the hook that helped grow my son’s curiosity and love of learning.”
