Meet Ms. Marie
m/w/f Mornings, t/th morning & afternoons
I grew up on a farm in Ireland and graduated from University College Dublin with an Honours Degree in Geophysics. I worked as a geophysicist for a few years before my husband, Brad and I had our three kids. Our son is now 16 and our twin girls are 14. When I was home with our children, I spent a lot of time in the classroom as a parent volunteer and co-chair! I love to do crafts and play board games with my family when we are not busy running between activities. Going for a bike ride, hike, or curling up with a good book are some of my favourite ways to unwind.
I am very excited to be returning to my eighth year at HHBH Playschool. I am thrilled to work and play with your kids in this fun, caring and nurturing environment. Through hands-on learning and observation, it is so lovely to witness each child’s growth into confident capable learners. I can’t wait to see you all in the classroom.
Meet Ms. Liz

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Dennis, but I have shortened it to Ms. Liz. ☺ I am a mother to 2 incredible children who are 13 and 9 years old. They are going into grade 8 and grade 5.
I have been working with children in various settings for over 16 years and have taught Preschool for the past 5 years. I am very excited to be joining your children in the HHBH preschool classroom and can’t wait to meet all the new and returning families in September.
