Bok Staff

  Meet Our Talented Staff!

Each teacher brings their talents in their unique way! We value what each of our teachers brings to our program as they facilitate learning in our play based, relationship based setting.

 Director:  Sarah Adams

I hold a B.S. in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from West Chester University and have been teaching preschool for the past two years in Alexandria, Virginia. The program I was in helped students from all over the world receive an education. They were able to play, grow and learn. The experience helped me grow as an educator and learn about my style of teaching. Project P.L.A.Y. School is an amazing school where children can learn through play. I look forward to working and learning from all our students.

Ry T. Noss


We are excited to have Ry Noss, join our fabulous staff. Ry graduated with a BA degree in Music Education from Temple University, and is excited to work as an early childhood expressive arts specialist.  Ry plays a variety of instruments, loves theater and dance, and is passionate about conducting research in the field of Early Childhood Arts Education. When they are not teaching or playing music, Ry likes to hike, cook, and snowboard.


Rosie Hill

As a painter, I have a passion for learning through play and exploration. I am interested in the collective learning experience that is achieved when working with children and when helping children collaborate with each other. PPS Bok is an environment flourishing with fun and learning; I am thrilled to be a part of it and to share my creativity with this wonderful community!

Abby Lozano

Hi, I’m Abby (They/Them) and I am working in the young toddler room this fall!

I have worked with kids for over 10 years and I love spending time with little ones especially. I enjoy playing and singing and watching the clouds pass by on bright summer days.

I’m excited to watch the little ones grow and learn so many things.

Laura Hutton

I have 5 years of nannying experience plus two kids of my own; one in college and one finishing high school. I like to nurture a child’s own interests through books, play, and activities. Some of my favorite things to do with kids are play outside in all kinds of weather and build with blocks and construction toys. I’m excited to partner with the children and dynamic PPS Bok staff in learning through play!

Grace Branch

Grace is so excited to be a member of Project Play! Grace has a an extensive background as a childcare worker and is dedicated to nurturing the whole child through play and collaboration. She is a creative, musical soul who believes everyone should be accepted for exactly who they are.
