Debbie Nerderman

Debbie has been in the field of education for more than 25 years. Her career began in early childhood education as a preschool teacher with a transition into a director position and, eventually, regional manager. Following her experiences in early childhood operations, she moved on to work with programs on quality improvement systems, grant management and staff development.  Social-emotional development is Debbie’s favorite topic to teach and, when she is not working, she is probably working on her latest crochet project.  

Philip Ferrari

Philip Ferrari has over 10 years experience in early and adolescent education, grant writing/ management and program evaluation. Philip has served as a High School History Teacher, University Researcher, Community Development Director, and Program Evaluator with some of the largest universities and non-profits in Dayton, OH. Through these experiences, Philip has learned to empathize and understand the perspectives of multiple stakeholders simultaneously. The primary value of evaluation comes from developing solutions collaboratively within teams. Philip has become adept in empowering educators, administrators, parents, and students to contribute meaningful insights to increase educational impact and program quality. When Philip isn’t writing lofty idealistic bio statements, you’ll find him playing guitar or attempting to make something both functional & beautiful in his wood shop.
