  • Ms. Conlin - Degreed Teacher, Private Kindergarten Lead Teacher since 2021

    Ms. Conlin - Degreed Teacher

    Private Kindergarten Lead Teacher since 2021

    My name is Patricia Conlin and I’d like to introduce myself as the new kindergarten teacher at Primrose School of Castle Hills. I am excited to join the talented staff at Primrose and make this a rewarding year for your child!

    I earned my B.A. in education and psychology and my M.A. in special education from San Francisco State University. In addition, I have teaching credentials in both general and bilingual education. Throughout my career, I have taught in a wide variety of classrooms, including general education, deaf education, and bilingual settings. I have worked with a variety of ages from infancy to fifth grade. My years of experience have equipped me with the ability to adapt the curriculum to meet the unique educational needs of each student.

    My personal teaching philosophy aligns closely with Primrose’s commitment to the development of the whole child -- as stated in their belief that “who children become is as important as what they know”. It is important to recognize the value of social and emotional development as well as academic growth and provide classroom opportunities for their development. Curiosity, perseverance and relationship skills are as critical to our success as our academic competence.

    I love teaching children in the early years of their education and being a guide on their journey of discoveries. It is amazing to watch a child as he or she slowly begins to recognize how many ways we use numbers in our lives, to help them make connections to storybook characters or share their observations of nature. It is satisfying to see children progress from writing their names to writing about their experiences. And after thirty years of teaching, the magic of hearing a child read his or her first book remains uniquely special.

    I believe you are an invaluable part of your child’s learning. Keeping a flow of positive and productive communication between us will assist me in creating a happy and successful Kindergarten year for your child.

    I look forward to meeting you and your child in the coming weeks! Please feel free to come up and introduce yourself. You may schedule a time to meet with me before or after class and you may also reach me via Primrose email.

    Chef Thomas - Degreed Staff Member

    Chef/Nutrition Manager

    My name is Chef Nicholas Thomas! I am honored to become a part of the Primrose School of Castle Hills family! I am from Jackson, MS. Cooking has always been my passion and I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the culinary field. I attended and graduated from Hinds Community College where I obtained a degree in Culinary Arts in 2015. After graduating I started my own business as a private caterer, which later led my wife and I to purchase and operate our own food truck. One year later, we opened a small restaurant that we operated for a few months before COVID and everything shut down. My wife and I decided it was time to move, so I moved my family to Texas. We have two beautiful daughters who attend school here and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!

    Sincerely,

    Chef Thomas

  • Tom and Priscilla Chow, Franchise Owner

    Tom and Priscilla Chow

    Franchise Owners

    Tom and Priscilla Chow are the proud owners of the Primrose School of Castle Hills. They started out as parents with their first son, Max, enrolled in the young infant classroom. They fell in love with the school's teachers, academic philosophy, and curriculum—so much so, they purchased the school in 2004.

    In their roles as both parents and owners, they focused intently on providing the very best for all the children at their school. Their philosophy is "A building doesn't make a school, teachers do. At the heart of any school is the staff.” Properly hiring, training, and developing teachers is one of their key focuses. One of the direct results of their philosophy is consistency. That is why the average lead teacher tenure is over 6 years- an amazing number for the industry.

    From an academic perspective, the Chows encourage children to be life-long learners and develop an early love of reading. In 2011, they introduced to schools nationwide the "Book of the Month" program. The program is simple. Every child, every month, receives a complimentary new book to add to their home library. Some children graduate the Primrose School of Castle Hills with over 60 books!

    In 2012, the Chows received the Primrose President's Award. This award is only given every two years to the best Primrose School in the nation. Primrose has also awarded the Primrose School of Castle Hills the designation of a Training School to train new directors and owners who enter the Primrose system.

    In 2015, the Chows were honored to be asked by the Texas Childcare Licensing department to be a model school for their new state licensing reps. They were chosen because of the school’s years of consistent high scores on every unannounced visit.

    The Chows are actively involved in the school and continue to look for new ways to provide the best in early childhood education.
