Hello! My name is Anne O'Brien and I am the Executive Director at Primrose School of Chelmsford. I've been with Primrose School of Chelmsford since June 2017 prepping and opening this school from ground up. It was a great experience that I treasure that I was a part of.
I grew up in Chelmsford so I know the surrounding area and many of the great people who live and work here as well - it's a great place to live and work! I bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from both the public and private sectors of education. I knew from an early age that I wanted to work with children. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education from Salem State University and have 30+ years of experience working with children and 20 years of director experience. It has been and continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences to work with children and their families. My favorite thing about working with small children is having the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of each child. It's awe-inspiring to watch an infant become a toddler and then a preschooler and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their early development and mold them for their future. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!
I am a mom to a ten year old daughter whom I love to spend time with. To unwind, I enjoy spending time with my family at the lake!
Please stop by and visit our Primrose School of Chelmsford. I'd love to meet you, show you our school and introduce you to our fantastic teachers!
Hi, my name is Michelle Hebert. I just wanted to take a minute to tell you a little bit about myself. I joined Primrose School of Chelmsford in October 2017, as Infant teacher and then PreK Teacher. I advanced to Assistant Director in September 2018.
I have two older brothers, both of which I am very close to! We spend a lot of time together watching sports, going fishing, and many other outdoor activities. Our family’s dog is named Roxy. She is ten years old and we do our best to bring her everywhere we go. I have been working with children since I was fourteen years old. I started working at an After School Program and eventually moved onto childcare centers when I graduated high school. I am a MA certified Lead Teacher in Infants/Toddlers and Preschool. I am also Director 2 certified. I recently recived my Assoicates Degree from MassBay Community College majoring in Early Childhood Education. I am excited to learn more about your child and your family.
Hi! I’m Ms. Lauren Bourassa and I wanted to tell you a little about myself! I joined Primrose School of Chelmsford in Sept 2018 as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher. In November 2019, I was promoted to Education Coach and now I support all of our 14 classrooms and teachers with curriculum, working with positive guidance, and mentoring.
I have been in the childcare field for seven years, but my love of teaching and caring for children has been practiced for much longer. Being the youngest of three, I became an aunt for the first time when I was thirteen years old. Fourteen years and seven nieces/nephews later, my passion and commitment is as strong as ever. Before joining Primrose, I worked as a teacher in the preschool room and Pre-Kindergarten rooms at Nashua KinderCare. My passion for teaching children can be seen with my charismatic approach to learning and compassion towards all of the children in my classroom. Everyday I strive to leave a positive impact with the children I teach. I attended the University of Maine where I studied elementary education and was a Division I college athlete, playing on the women’s soccer team. I currently have a child development associates and hopes to further my education to obtain a degree in special education.
Im most excited about getting to meet new children and learning from each other.
I joined Primrose School of Chelmsford in Sept 2018.
I started cooking while attending Lowell High School, and continued throughout my time at UMass Lowell(Community Health Education) . I have cooked in restaurants (breakfast/lunch and dinner), in banquet halls (weddings, conferences ) and in nursing homes. While I have a good amount of experience in the cooking field, this is my first experience on a school/educational setting. When not at work, I enjoy teaching my daughter and son how to cook, and passing on family recipes (Irish and Greek). I have a 9 year old daughter and a 5 year old son. My son was born completely deaf, so we are learning ASL as a family. I can't wait to cook healthy food and bring my skills to Primrose School of Chelmsford.

Soon after I realized it was children that I wanted to work with. I worked at a daycare for several months before joining Primrose School of Chelmsford.
