Erin Evans, Program Director

Erin joined the Growing Places team in January of 2021. Erin has been working with young humans since 2014. Erin received her B.S. in Childhood Studies from Plymouth State University and a minor in music with a focus on operatic voice. She went on to become a certified Montessori educator for ages 3-6. She honors that each child is an individual with tremendous potential and hopes to make Our Time a fun place to learn and explore for children, staff, and parents alike. She is thrilled to be back where her educational career began: working with school aged kiddos! When Erin is not at Our Time, you can find her curled up with a book and a cat on her lap, doing something crafty, or playing a nostalgic video game.
