Meet the Staff

RobinRobin Sinclair, Director

My name is Robin Sinclair and I am excited to be the new Executive Director at Little Red School House. As a native of Snowmass Village, I have had a long connection with the school including working as a Teacher’s Aid every summer during college and working as a Toddler Teacher for 2 ½ years after college.  I graduated from Aspen High School in 1993 and went on to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education at Montana State University. I completed my student teaching in Ireland and went on work towards my Master’s Degree in Multicultural Education in Huntington Beach, CA. Upon my return to Snowmass Village six years ago, I worked as a teacher for five years at the Early Learning Center in Aspen, and eventually transitioned into a position as the Interim Director at Early Learning Center. Additionally, I taught skiing at Snow Cubs in Snowmass Village. I live in Snowmass Village with my husband and beautiful daughter, Zoe.  As the only preschool in Snowmass Village, Little Red School House fits a great need in our community. I am passionate about early childhood education and look forward to carrying on the tradition of excellence at Little Red School House.

Erica Thorne-Keziah, Teachererica

Hi, my name is Erica Thorne-Keziah and I am the Lead Teacher in the Toddler Center. I am a Colorado girl who grew up in Lafayette, right outside of Boulder. As a child, my family was heavily involved in Church activities and Girl Scouts. Both groups had a heavy emphasis on family and mentoring, and it seemed only natural that I spent my time working and caring for younger children. After High School I attended Kansas State University and received a Bachelor of Architecture Degree. When I graduated I moved to Aspen to work, but after a few years working in the Architecture field I realized that working with children was my true calling. I have been working in the field and taking classes for the last five years and loving every minute. I am gracious to have the opportunity to get to know your family and I will always be available if you have any questions.

Bree picBree Kidd, Teacher

Hello, my name is Bree Kidd. I am a new teacher here in the toddler center. Being a native of the Aspen/Snowmass area, I have always loved the mountains. Needing to leave what we thought of as “the bubble” growing up, I headed to Orange County, CA where I attended the Lutheran school Concordia University for 4 years. I then moved home to be with my boyfriend, who I later married, and we now have a beautiful daughter who we are enjoying raising around family and our home. I graduated with a degree in exercise sport science with an emphasis in athletic training. However after working as a toddler ski instructor in Snowmass for the last 13 years, I feel that I have found my calling in early childhood education.
