HTASC Staff are here because of their commitment to the HTASC mission to provide a program that facilitates academic success, develops strong character and creates independent thinkers with a love of learning.
Oh,...and they love children!
"Ms S" started with HTASC as the teacher of the 3-5 class. In 2018, Vivien Simpson took the reins as Program Director. Since then, she has transformed HTASC into an exemplary program where children learn, build strong character and feel respected and loved.
Vivien has a Masters of Arts in French from St Andrews University, Scotland and a Masters in Teaching from Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY.
In her spare time Vivien loves reading, cooking and any outdoors activity. She is thrilled to join HTASC as Program Director and her passion is to inspire and help all children to be their very best selves both academically, socially and emotionally.
Kacy Ann Windet was born in Jamaica and has a B.A in Education. She enjoys traveling, reading and cooking.
Teaching has been a passion for Kacy for over seventeen years. Her mission at HTASC is to create a stimulating classroom environment that will instill and enhance a lifelong love of learning among her students.
She is thrilled to be a part of the supportive and creative team at HTASC and is looking forward to introducing enriching activities that focus on creativity, exploration and fun!
