Our Team

Our team of certified, nurturing teachers thrive on creating a welcoming, enriched environment for students. With a play-centric curriculum that focuses on developing both social/emotional and pre-academic skills, our teachers love helping your little ones grow.

Meet Sally Jackson, M.Ed.
Director & Lead Teacher

Ms. Sally is a certified Teacher, Lead Teacher and Director by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). Sally has been with The Community School for four years, but has more than twenty-three years of experience as a Lead Teacher and nineteen years working simultaneously as both a Director and Lead Teacher. When working in the preschool, Sally loves listening to children tell her stories, watching kids figure things out for themselves, and reading to her students. Sally is married and has two grown children. When she’s not at The Community School she enjoys spending time with her big extended family, sailing, reading and watching good movies. Some of Sally’s favorite children’s books are Donna O’Neeshuck Was Chased By Some Cows, by Bill Grossman, and Edward The Emu, by Sheena Knowles.

Meet Victoria Tabor, M.Ed.
Board of Directors President

Ms. Vicky is the President of our Board of Directors, former Lead Teacher at The Community School, and current volunteer and substitute teacher. She received her B.A. in Psychology from Boston University, and her M.Ed. at Antioch University in Cambridge. Vicky has thirty-five years of experience in Early Childhood Education, including twenty-seven years at The Community School. Vicky finds it exciting to work with young children because they are learning so quickly. She says, “lessons learned now, such as empathy and scientific curiosity will stay with them throughout their lifetimes.” Vicky has two grown children. She shares her home with her husband, Bob, dog, Bodie and cat, Dory. When she is not at The Community School, Vicky enjoys hiking, reading, kayaking, singing in her church choir and she has recently taken up playing the recorder. Vicky has a long list of favorite children’s books, but if she had to pick one, it’s Margaret Wise Brown’s, Runaway Bunny, because of the sense of security that it gives to children.
