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!

LaDonna Moore – Teacher

I have been in a cooperative in one way or another for 30 years. I was a co-op parent and then the teacher/Director of the Santa Rosa Cooperative Preschool. When the preschool expanded to a Preschool through 8th grade school, I got my teaching credential and then my Administrative credential; working as a teacher and Director. I believe in the benefits of a parent cooperative and am very excited to work with the 3 year old class this year. We will have a wonderful time learning and growing.


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.
