Meet Our Director

Marie Masseo, MSECE

“Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water.” – Loris Malaguzzi, Educator/Reggio Emilia Approach

Marie had been honored to serve our community as Assistant Director, and now is moving into her new role as Kehillah School for Early Learning Director!

She has been an Early Childhood educator for over 35 years, earning a Bachelor in Communication Arts in 1985 from The College of New Rochelle and Masters in Early Childhood Education from CNR in 1992.

Marie began her career by originating preschool programs in Dobbs Ferry and Ossining. Then, moving to Weekday Nursery School in New Rochelle, where she was Head Teacher and Assistant Director for 17 years. Prior to joining Kehillah at Temple Israel, Marie was the Curriculum Director at Huguenot Nursery School in Pelham Manor, New York.

“I believe teachers and children have an opportunity to create reciprocal relationships in the classroom that foster respect, creativity, and a love of learning. As an Early Childhood Administrator, I will work to support and nurture relationships between families, children, and teachers to create purposeful experiences in classrooms and outdoors with nature.”  – Marie
