Anna Rapp has been the Director of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Preschool for six years. Before becoming director, she was a Montessori teacher for 16 years. Anna is from Summerville, South Carolina, and received a degree in Psychology from the University of South Carolina. She soon fell in love with early education, particularly the Montessori philosophy, and obtained my Montessori Credentials from the Greater Cincinnati Center for Montessori Education. Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Preschool combined her favorite aspects of Montessori with a traditional play-based foundation that she has always valued. Anna, and husband Jess, and her son Andy reside in Mariemont. Anna thinks of Pleasant Ridge as her second home and loves the community and atmosphere. Anna and her family love trying new restaurants and cheering for their beloved Gamecocks but, she spends most of my free time attending her son’s many sporting events and activities.
