Trinity Episcopal Children’s Center (TECC), a ministry of Trinity Episcopal Church in Towson, Maryland that offers quality preschool and child care for two-year-old, three-year-old, and pre-kindergarten children, has named Mrs. Corby Pine as its new director.
Pine will be responsible for TECC’s operations starting June 17, 2013. Working with an experienced, professional, and caring team of early-childhood educators, she will help TECC continue to carry out its mission of creating an atmosphere in which each child can develop a love of God, a sense of self-worth, and respect for others.
“Corby brings a wealth of educational experience with her, and we look forward to her arrival and leadership at TECC,” said Jeff Simon, president of the ministry board of the Children’s Center. The Rev. Ken Saunders, rector of Trinity Church, said, “Her nurturing character and love of the children will be a great fit with the philosophy and spirit of the Trinity community.”
Pine has worked at the Elmhurst Nursery School since 1997, teaching two- and three-year-olds, coordinating the science program (twos through kindergarten), and most recently serving as assistant to the director.
She has also held the position of interim director of Christian education at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Baltimore, and has held teaching positions at the Garrison Forest School and the Boys’ Latin School. Pine is an adjunct professor at Towson University, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses for majors in elementary education and science education for early childhood.
Pine has a master’s degree in education from the University of Virginia and an undergraduate degree from Sweet Briar College in Virginia.
