Staff & Board Members


Debbie “Squirl” Booth – Director

I have lived in Santa Rosa for 35 years and my husband and I have raised our two boys here. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 30 years and bring to Franklin Park Co-op Preschool all my accumulated knowledge as a teacher, director, Early Childhood Trainer and Director Mentor. Working with parents in providing the best supportive and nurturing learning environment for their children is extremely rewarding! Together, we work hard to maintain Franklin Park’s high standards of early childhood education and uphold our co-op spirit!


Sasha Allen – Teacher

I have been working with pre-school aged children for over 15 years along with currently raising two daughters of my own. This is my first year as the 3’s teacher at Franklin Park Co-op Preschool. I feel very fortunate to be working in a school community where the parents and teachers come together to create the best learning experience for the children. The Co-op opportunity in which Franklin Park offers is truly rewarding for everyone involved.


Colleen – Teacher

I am a native Sonoma county resident, with bouts of travel fever. I have several nieces and nephews, plus two cats. I have been in early child education for 5 years. I am really excited to become the 4’s teacher at Franklin Park Co-op Preschool. Having the ability to work with parents as a team to better children’s early learning is a really very satisfying. I look forward to building a working and nurturing bond with not only the children, but their parents also. One of the great joys of a co-op preschool is the sense of community and teamwork. I went to a co-op preschool and now it feels like I have come full circle by teaching at Franklin Park Co-op Preschool.
