prekindergarten team


Sophia Kim

Before First Circle, I worked for over 12 years in the education field, including work as a developmental specialist, providing weekly in-home services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays. I earned my BA in literature from UMass Lowell and my master's in education from Lesley University. I love working with children because they are naturally curious and always willing to learn something new every day. They never tire and spark life! I am a mother of five, and when I'm not working, I love to travel, write, read, eat, and live life to the fullest.

Matt Cole

I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Winona State University. I actually attended First Circle as a baby, until I was five years old—then I returned as an assistant teacher for three years. I was also an assistant at a Montessori preschool for two years. I think it’s important that students have an excellent teacher from a young age to make sure they are developing properly into healthy and happy children… and I want to be that teacher. Outside of work, you can frequently find me thrift shopping, watching HBO, going to concerts with my friends, riding my bike, or going on hikes and to the beach. I also love to sing and dance—but not well!
