After a successful year as a co-head teacher in PreK, we are delighted that Mrs. Kelly (mother to Charlie, Grade 7) will be the Kindergarten teacher this year. She holds a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Literacy. Mrs. Kelly brings to her new role a wealth of experience at the Kindergarten age level and a high degree of training in literacy at the early childhood and elementary age levels. We are confident that Tiffany’s intimate knowledge of Tuxedo Park School’s mission and culture, her instant rapport with young children, and her curricular and pedagogical expertise make her the ideal person to take our Kindergarten program to new heights.

Ms. Bradley has a Bachelor's Degree in education from Temple University and is currently pursuing her Master's Degree at Manhattanville College.
