Stacey Walker, Director
Stacey has been working in the field of education for over 20 years. She comes to FPNS from New Canaan CARES, where she was the Education Program Coordinator for the past five years. Stacey's career began in 1999, teaching first grade in the inner city of New York. She quickly realized mental health and education were integral components of family dynamics. With this in mind, she taught parent workshops and created an after-school theatre club for her students to express themselves through the arts. Keeping this theme throughout her teaching career in New York, Colorado, and Connecticut, she continued to educate children and families to promote wellness and growth. Stacey earned her Master's Degree in Education from New York University and a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Vermont. She is thrilled to return to the educational setting working with preschoolers and their families! Stacey lives with her husband and three children in New Canaan.
