Caroline Drouin was a previous school board member and, after substitute teaching at the school in the spring, has joined the staff as a full-time associate teacher. Drouin's degree is in Business Management and she plans to enroll in additional Early Childhood Education classes in the fall. She lives in Gilford with her husband and three sons.
Amy Kulcsar, associate teacher, is a former speech language pathologist. She worked with preschool and school-age children in a variety of schools and settings focusing on early childhood education. Kulcsar lives in Gilford with her husband and three children who attend Gilford schools.
