Dolores Elkin

Born on the lower East side of NY, I loved my preschool and art experiences and those passions have stayed with me for life.

I graduated from SUNY New Paltz as an art teacher, received a Masters from the Bank Street College of Education, and taught in public and independent schools. I walked into The San Francisco School with its trees, yards, space and art on the walls everywhere, and I have stayed since then. For 25 years I’ve been able to introduce each new generation to the joys of academic and social learning, guiding children to developing skills and experiences for the first time. I also enjoy art with construction projects as I work with the Riveropolis program for the past five summers. I am licensed with a Child Development Program Director Permit, PreK-6  CA Clear Multiple Subjects Teacher Credential and art. NY State teaching certificate PreK-6 /Art.
