Eileen Dost: Teacher/Director
My name is Eileen Dost and I am currently the Director at St. Peter’s Nursery Preschool. I have an undergraduate degree in History from Cortland State University College and a Master’s degree from Adelphi University. This will be my 27th year at St. Peter’s Nursery Preschool. I have been an assistant in a 2 year old class, a 2 year old Leader; an assistant in a 3 year old class, a 3 year old teacher; and a 4 year old teacher: an incredible, continuing journey! What began as a “very” part time place and position for me quickly became an integral part of my life. Very early on, it became apparent to me that St. Peter’s was not only the right fit at the right time for me and my family, but fulfilled me in ways that other jobs – careers, had not. I am passionate about education and feel excited about all the little things, and the big ways, I can affect the lives of the children I have met and will continue to work with. I have felt fulfilled working at St. Peter’s Nursery Preschool, and blessed to be given the opportunity to work with a very dedicated staff, who continually strive to ensure that each child receives the very best preschool education possible.

“A grateful heart is a happy heart.”

I am grateful for the 40 years I have been a part of St. Peter’ s Nursery Preschool; first as a Mom and then as a member of the staff. I cherish the heartfelt memories I hold as both Leader and Assistant in the 2-year-old Playgroup -- from the first day of school -- September 1984; 37 years ago. I had the opportunity to assist both 3-year-old and 4-year-old teachers throughout the continuing years. In 2007, I moved my “desk” to the Preschool Office and have enjoyed helping new families join the St. Peter’s Family.

Not being able to leave the classroom behind,  I started working with the littlest ones in our Mommy and Me program in 2010.  

I look forward to meeting both old friends and new friends as we begin another year filled with the joy of learning.
