So long Katherine, welcome Dani.

After a six-week search and eight interviews White Pines has hired Dani Bryant to replace Katherine Perry as White Pines' Director of Education. 

After two years of great leadership, dynamic teaching and program development, Katherine Perry is stepping down as Director of Education. "This decision was hers," says Benjamin Lloyd, Executive Director of White Pines. "Ironically, it is her success in growing the educational programs that led to this transition. There is now so much going on educationally at White Pines, there simply isn't enough time for Katherine to do all the other things she wants to do in her life."

Dani comes on officially on September 15th, and both Dani and Katherine will be teaching classes this fall. Thank you Katherine, for all you have brought to education at White Pines!

"I'm thrilled to be joining White Pines Productions as the new Director of Education. I'm am deeply invested and excited by our mission to nurture the citizen artist so that they can better serve their community. I look forward to supporting that mission by engaging our community in thoughtful conversations around how we can better serve one another through 
the creative arts."

"My time serving as the Director of Education has been wonderful - thank you to all the parents and students who have helped make White Pines a truly special place for all ages. I am off to pursue artistic opportunities (don't worry! You will still see me teaching classes and performing with Bright Invention), and cannot wait to see how WPP Educational Programming will grow under Dani's incredible leadership.."
