Barbara Elsas
After high school I ended up in DC majoring in theater and Life! Went to NYU graduate school and spent 7 years teaching kindergarten in Berlin, Germany in the 70's. It was a wild, gorgeous place with artists and left wing students and an amazing wall around the city. I loved every minute of it! I met my American husband there and ended up in Ithaca for 3 years. And then to Washington DC for the past 30 where I raised my beautiful daughter Jessica as a single parent.

I have spent the last 25 years with 2 and 3 year olds in my own little school and wouldn't want it any other way. I adore them! My passions include films, children, photography, theater, nature and political activism!! I just became a first time grandma of a beautiful boy named Jack. I love life and have enjoyed the ride so far immensely!! Can't wait to see you all next September!!
