BANDON - The Bandon Community Preschool Board has announced the hiring of a new head teacher, Shahala Kroll.
Kroll is a certified Montessori primary teacher and specializes in working with children ages 2.5 to 6 years old. Kroll has extensive experience working with young children and considers it a passion and a joy to be a teacher.
Kroll grew up in Southern Oregon on an 18,000 acre cattle ranch, riding horses and raising orphaned calves. In her teenage years she began traveling across cultures and overseas. In her travels Kroll found that the most important aspect of helping to build a healthy community in any culture beings with early childhood development and education.
Kroll and her three daughters fell in love with the small town community of Bandon and made it their home two years ago. They enjoy being a part of the local dance school, Bandon sports and and making pottery and art. Kroll is an avid hiker and loves exploring nature. She and her girls travel often and foster a life-long love of learning.
Helping to enrich her local community is both an honor and a joy and she is looking forward to teaching at Bandon Community Preschool. An open house and a meet and greet with Kroll will be scheduled soon.
