Stacey Denniston, Co-Director and 3’s Program Hello my name is Stacey Denniston, “Miss Stacey” to all my CTNS friends. I have a MS degree in Counseling and 18 years of experience working with children of all ages in a variety of settings from Preschool through College age. I am a former Executive Director of a local Charity for children and I have a deep commitment to the health and happiness of all kids. This year I am excited to be partnering with Miss Robin in the 3- year-old classroom as well as acting as Director for CTNS. I have three children, Eamonn (12), Cormac (8), and Áine (7) and all are happy and successful graduates of CTNS. We enjoy doing outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming. I have a very healthy sense of humor and I enjoy the huge happy spirits that reside within the little bodies of Preschool Students. They bring such joy, laughter, and wonder to our everyday lives and I feel honored and privileged to spend my days with your children. I look forward to a fun and exciting year filled with play, laughter, discovery, and fun. Lisa Perry- 3’s and 4’s Teacher My name is Lisa Perry, and I will be teaching a 3 year old and the 4 year old class this year! I grew up in Cheektowaga, NY (not far from Buffalo - GO BILLS!) and graduated from SUNY Fredonia. Later that year got married and moved to Palmyra! My husband was teaching in the High School, and we both loved the village! I taught for two years at a private school in Fairport, until we found out I was expecting our first child. When we looked around for a preschool, I just knew that Canal Town was the place for her. Now, that "little" girl is in 8th grade, her sister is in 5th, and my "baby boy" is in 3rd grade, all proud CTNS graduates! Canal Town has had a special place in my life, too, as not only a mom but a Board member, substitute, assistant and teacher! Other than Canal Town, I've taught sign language classes for young children at both Marion and Macedon libraries. At home, I'm usually running the kids to dance class, musical rehearsal, or basketball games. Another favorite family activity is ganging up on Mom when we play Sorry! I love to try and knit and am working on playing (more than 3 chords on) guitar. I can't wait to see what adventures are in store this year! Robin Lindstrom, 3’s Teacher Hello, and welcome to Canal Town Nursery School! My name is Robin Lindstrom or “Miss Robin,” to all my CTNS friends. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and eighteen years’ experience in early childhood programs. I have worked in a variety of settings with ages spanning from newborns up to, and including, kindergarten.   I am so happy you are here! I believe nursery school is the true foundation to classroom learning. It forms the building blocks for not only early learning concepts but also general socialization and life skills. I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. My husband and I both grew up in Palmyra. He, in fact, went to CTNS in 1981 and 1982! We moved to Oregon after we graduated college and lived there for 5 years. We are “back home” in Palmyra, where we are raising our three children: Jenna (7), Erika (4) and Luke (3). They keep us very busy and constantly entertained. We enjoy: sports activities, running races (5k, 10k, etc.) and obstacle courses, camping, the beach, movies and watching football (GO BILLS!!!). I am excited to be teaching at CTNS!  We have a very family-orientated atmosphere and I feel privileged to be working with such a great staff. I am excited to help begin or continue building the foundation of your preschooler’s education! Keri Devlin, 3’s Assistant Teacher My name is Keri Devlin. I live in Palmyra with my husband, Shawn, and our three children , Kassi, 13, Shana, 9, and Keegan, 6.  I have devoted the last 13 years to be at home raising our children while working part time at Roots Salon as a hairstylist and nail technician.  I will continue to work there as well as start a new adventure at Canal Town Nursery School. I am looking forward to being part of such a great team of people and a great group of children!
