Ms. Sherry- Director & Teacher

Hello and welcome to the Co-op!

My name is Sherry Clem and I have been given the wonderful opportunity of teaching your children. I have been involved in various pre-school and elementary school programs since 2007, starting off as a special education instructional assistant
and in-home Teacher at many SCOE programs around the Rohnert Park and Petaluma areas. I then moved on to work for two years at Penngrove Elementary School as a Special Ed assistant in Kindergarten and First grade. Working closely with the Kindergarten and First grade Teachers gave me great insight on what’s to be expected of our little ones one day. I started working at the Co-op in 2009 as the morning 2s and 3s teacher, finally taking over as lead teacher and Director
in 2012.

Before I became a Teacher, I was privileged enough to be a stay-at-home mom. Raising my three beautiful daughters has been the toughest yet most rewarding job I have ever had. They are the reason I am here as a Teacher today! I am also a past Co-op family. We found this little school by accident when we first moved here in 2002. My oldest was three and the school had a spot in the Caterpillars class, so we signed up and the rest is history! We made many wonderful memories, many lasting friendships, and I very much enjoyed having the opportunity to be a part of their education. I am eager to share in your moments here at the Co-op as well!

Ms. Jessica- Parent & Me Teacher

I have worked with young children for many years, both as a nanny and as a paraeducator for the Marin County Office of Education. As a paraeducator, I worked with preschoolers with special needs, and saw firsthand the value and importance of a child-centered, developmentally-appropriate curriculum. I was also fortunate to work alongside and learn from many experienced early childhood professionals. My experience at MCOE, coupled with my studies in child development, have shaped the educator that I am today.

My family joined the Co-op in 2017 when we enrolled our son in Parent and Me, and it has been a positive and rewarding experience from day one. I look forward to welcoming you to our Co-op community and working with you and your children!
