Fiona Macfarlane, a preschool teacher, was born in Bishopton, Scotland and over the course of her life, has moved 16 times. She studied at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Aberdeen where she received a B.S. in Honors Genetics and a Professional Graduate Diploma in Teaching. Fiona has been working at The Village School for six years as a Pre-K4 Head Teacher. When we asked her what she likes best about The Village School, she responded, “The diversity of staff and students, and the friendly and positive attitude.”
Her experience in international education serves her students well as she teaches them fundamental skills, how to work collaboratively with other students, and sparks their curiosity and eagerness to learn. Those characteristics are evident in her favorite quote from Mark Van Doren- “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” She loves being able to take extra steps with them to open up a whole new world of discovery.
