Teacher Kellie

Teacher Kellie is a long-standing figure in the Bunker Hill community- she even attended as a child! After being a student, parent, and board member, Kellie made the transition to teacher, and is beloved by our 2Day families. Currently working toward her degree in Early Childhood Education, Kellie brings creativity to our curriculum, invites imaginative play through large dramatic play scenes, and instills kindness in our littlest sticky friends.

Teacher Lexi

Teacher Lexi graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Early Childhood Studies. She is currently continuing her education while teaching 3Day at Bunker Hill. Her passion for working with young children started in high school taking child development classes and volunteering at a child development center. Lexi has experience working with children ranging from infancy to preschool in school and home settings.

She loves supporting children to create positive experiences through play and exploration of the outdoors. Lexi loves forming relationships with parents and working together to bring messes, problem solving, and curiosity to 3Day! When Lexi is not at school, she enjoys doing yoga, exploring new places, and spending time with her friends and family, especially her infant niece. She lives with her parents and senior cat, Widget, in San Mateo.

Teacher Sarah

Teacher Sarah uses her background in design to encourage children to view the world through a lens of wonder. She co-oped with both of her children at Bunker Hill, and fell in love with the generous and empathetic community fostered among our teachers and parents. Sarah embraces our sticky friends spirit, and has a passion for working with young children and Early Childhood Education. When not picking up bugs, Sarah can be found crafting small costumes for her gecko.

I believe children benefit from a connection to nature and Bunker Hill is a perfect place to experience it. I also love the sense of community at Bunker Hill and how much we can learn from each other.

Mascot

Sticky the Banana Slug

Meet Sticky, Bunker Hill’s beloved banana slug mascot! Sticky is often found while hiking in the 93 acre woods at the back of campus. Children in our programs delight in identifying him and his relatives while hiking and learning about his natural habitat. He is famous for inspiring Bunker Hill’s motto, where sticky friends are quickly made, which is also a reference to the sticky fun children experience with a variety of mediums, including slime! Sticky is lovingly embraced by the community in song, art projects, and slug references throughout the school including Bananagrams, Banana Screens, Sticky Notes and Sticky Packets!
