Karen Lin - Lead Teacher

Having experienced the benefits of a cooperative education for her own children, Karen was thrilled to join our staff in the Fall of 2014. 

She brings years of experience working with young children in a variety of settings including at a nature center and a special needs preschool. 

She has a bachelor's degree in biology and an associate’s degree in early childhood education.

Dana Wheeler - Assistant Teacher

Dana previously taught elementary students for 13 years in Connecticut. She had majored in Environmental Policy, 

but she loved working with children so much as a substitute that she returned to USM for her K-6 teaching training. 

She was excited to find GCP for her son and honored to join the staff in 2022.
