Carla Frank

I began my career at Portsmouth High School as the Little Clipper Preschool teacher 10 years ago. This past year I have had the pleasure of teaching the theory of Education to high school students and enjoyed watching them grow through the hands-on experiences they receive from working in the lab school. I have enjoyed seeing the program grow and change over the years and look forward to that continuing for many years to come. I have two Master's degrees, one in Early Childhood Education with Special Needs from UNH and another in Curriculum Design and Instruction from New England College. I truly enjoy interacting with young children and especially enjoy sharing my knowledge of teaching with the high school students. My family consists of my husband, who is wonderful and a great support, and my son Aaron.

Hello, my name is Alexe Williams, and I am the Little Clipper Preschool teacher. I graduated from UNH in 2010 with my Bachelor's degree in Child and Family Studies and in 2011, received my Master's degree in elementary education. I have worked with various age levels; from infancy up to fifth grade.

Preschool is a wonderful year for growth and development. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and learning through play.

When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family, friends, and my dog, Remy. I also love being outside, reading, and cooking. I look forward to working with your child here at Little Clipper Preschool!
