Introducing Brooke Lowe: Hudson Street’s Administrative Coordinator

Brooke Lowe is our new Administrative Coordinator at our Hudson Street site. Coming to us from a small town in Connecticut, Brooke is the point-person for all things Hudson. You can contact her at hudsonfrontdesk@wms-nyc.org. We’re thrilled she’s joined the WMS community and invite you to learn a little more about her! Please read this brief interview with Brooke:

What do you do at WMS?
I am the new front desk coordinator at the Hudson Street location! I facilitate communication between parents and teachers, maintain all student files, and place orders for school supplies. Though I have big shoes to fill, Genna has been super helpful showing me the ropes.

Where did you grow up? What was your childhood like?
I grew up in a small coastal town in Connecticut called Rowayton – just an hour outside the city. I spent most of my childhood on the water, playing lacrosse and ice hockey, and skiing with my family in the winter. I am the youngest of three siblings, and we grew up with two cats, Toby and Harley.

How did you end up joining the WMS community?
During college I worked at a pre-school and loved it. When I graduated I was working for a media company based out of Boston and really missed being in a school environment. I decided to transition from media and I found my way to WMS.

So far, what’s your favorite thing about WMS?
The people! Everyone here has been so welcoming and has helped me feel a part of the community from the moment I walked in the door. I love the school’s philosophy, and dedication to the children. It’s also in a great neighborhood near lots of yummy restaurants and cool shops!

What’s the best memory you have from when you were in preschool?
When I was in preschool we read a book called Roxaboxen by Alice McLerran. After we read the book we were able to create our own Roxaboxen community around the school’s woods and sports fields. I loved the opportunity to create my own little world with my classmates.
