Mindy Brooks Mulford – Teacher:
Mrs. M has a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from George Mason University. She began teaching in the Fairfax County Schools for 6 years.  She began to look for a new preschool for her eldest daughter. She knew that the school she was looking for had to be very special. Mulford Preschool turned out to be the perfect school for her daughter. It was the combination of the atmosphere, the Lifetime Skills that are taught and The Mulford Method that made this school so special. She enjoyed being a helping parent so much that she began training to learn to teach using the Mulford Method.

“I enjoy teaching and working with children and I am excited to be a part of a program that gives children an advantage for a lifetime.”

Sue Blondin – Teacher:
Mrs. Blondin is excited to be teaching again at Mulford School.  She began at the school as a helping parent when she enrolled her son in 1997.  He thrived in the program and loved school so much that they enrolled him 5 days a week.  Her twin daughters followed and during their first year at Mulford School, Mrs. Blondin began training with Mrs. Mulford to teach the Mulford Method.  She began teaching in the fall of 2000 and continued for 5 years.  She returned in 2012 in the same classroom she left.

“I felt like I never left because the same values are being taught every day.  It is such a joy for me to spend the morning with the little ones and watch them grow and develop as they learn important life skills.”

Mrs. Williams has a degree in communications and consumer studies from Virginia Tech.  She has been teaching at The Mulford School for 15 years.  She loves the focus the school has on each individual child and loves that the children are always engaged in an educational activity.

“After 15 years of working in the “real world”, I realized I wanted to do something that made a difference.  I found that Mulford School teaches children that they are important, what they do matters, and that they are capable of anything.  When my daughter started at Mulford School I never left!”
