Our Staff

Pat Lipuma

    I was raised in a close-knit, loving Italian family with close ties to our church and community.  I've worked at The ARK Children's Center since September 1995 and have taught children in all age groups, as well as serving as Assistant Director.  I retired in 2016 but was happy to return part-time to work in a 2 year old classroom.  It's been such a privilege to get to know so many wonderful children and their families over the past twenty plus years.

    I enjoy reading, baking (trying new recipes), traveling, yoga, volunteering at my church, and of course spending time with my husband and two daughters.
