Cammarota, whose 10-year-old son attended St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church Pre-K as a pre-schooler, has recently been named director of the Hatboro-based educational program.
"I sent my own son here to St. John's," Cammarota wrote in a letter to parents of the school's 56 students. "We have a wonderful program here at St. John's, with great teachers who do age appropriate activities which really prepare the children for kindergarten."
The school draws students from Hatboro, Horsham, Warminster, Upper Moreland and even one student from Philadelphia, according to Cammarota.
A member of St. John's Lutheran Church, Cammarota graduated from Beaver College with a degree in early childhood and elementary education. Prior to having her children–ages 16, 13 and 10–she taught in the Abington School District.
More recently, she served as a substitute teacher in surrounding districts and last year worked as a special education assistant at Blair Mill Elementary School.
At St. John's Pre-K, which educates two classes of 3 year old and two classes of 4 year olds from September through May, Cammarota said she intends to keep the 44-year program the same.
"I hope to work closely with the teachers to keep the excellent standard of pre-kindergarten that St. John's offers," she said.
