Donna Kleinman
Director – Teacher
Donna graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. She has worked as a teacher and administrator in the field of early childhood education for thirty years.

Donna believes that Reggio is the best choice for children, families, and educators. Children are curious, creative, and competent. When adults are present and listen to children, they help them construct meaning of their worlds. She is thrilled to be a part of the Tender Roots learning community and enthusiastic about the collaborative explorations ahead!
