The Vivvi community is excited to announce Desiree Mercury as one of our first faculty members for our flagship campus at 75 Varick Street. Desiree joins Lynne and Navita, and the growing list of new faculty who are taking the vision behind our inquiry-based model and bringing it to reality.
Desiree joins Vivvi as a Co Teacher in our Infant & Toddler Classrooms. Desiree brings wonderful classroom experience to Vivvi and is looking forward to taking her knowledge of working with older preschool students and bringing that to her Toddlers. For the past 7 years, she was a lead teacher at Stuyvesant Heights Montessori in the Pre-Kindergarten. She began her teaching as an Associate at the Berkeley Carroll School in Park Slope. Desiree was a member of the Berkeley Carroll School faculty for 6 years. Desiree holds an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Kingsborough Community College and a BA in Psychology from Medgar Evers College.
In her free time, Desiree enjoys travelings, meditating, and long walks in the park.
A huge welcome to Desiree!
