Beth Kohland joined Columbus Academy as a lead teacher in our Explorers Program in 2019. Before joining CA she taught at The Wellington School in the 3-year-old and kindergarten classes. Beth is a former co-head teacher for 2-4 year-olds at Westport Weston Cooperative Nursery School in Connecticut, and a former head teacher at Beansprouts Nursery School in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, where she worked with ages 2-5. She earned a B.A. in theater studies at University of Surrey in London, England, and her M.S. in education from Brooklyn College in New York. Outside of work, she loves to go for walks with her husband Ryan, and daughters (Virginia '34 and Victoria '36), gardening, and chatting with family and friends in New York. A little-known fact about Beth is that she worked for Nickelodeon and had a few cameo appearances on “U-Pick Live.”
