Degrees and Certifications:

Polly Bolding

I've been at the Preschool since 2007, first as an Early Head Start infant teacher, then the Early Head Start Family and Community Partnerships Coordinator, and most recently the Preschool Program Enrollment and Engagement Coordinator. I have a Bachelor's degree in History, Master's in Early Childhood Education, and a K-6 teaching license. I'm from Atlanta originally, where I had teaching experience with 5th grade, 1st grade, and toddlers. I love that I can walk to work every day from my home in West Asheville, which I share with my husband and daughter. I also love books, music, coffee, gardening, brain/social science, anything design-related, and most houseplants. My favorite part of working with kids is having conversations, acting goofy, and building relationships.
