Sam Earle and Heidi DiJulio



Our classroom teacher, Sandra (Sam) Earle, began teaching for Irvington Preschool in 2001. She strongly believes in Irvington’s philosophy of providing a play-based curriculum, which enables students to learn socialization skills, conflict resolution, and obtain a love of learning. Sam has a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Lewis and Clark College and a Masters of Human Resources specializing in Early Childhood Education from Pacific Oaks College. Sam taught third, fourth, and sixth grade before becoming a preschool teacher. She has two boys in their twenties, both of whom attended Irvington Preschool. She is an animal lover and has a dog and two cats,  as well as the 2 classroom guinea pigs.


Our lunch bunch teacher, Heidi DiJulio taught kindergarten and first grade for 6 years in CA. She then worked for Mad Science, first as an instructor, then as the program coordinator. For the last 4 years, she has been fortunate to stay home with her son, Mason, who is a Butterfly this year.  She is excited to be with the littles again, exploring her passion for education and finding super fun ways to grow your kiddos’ minds!
