    School Director

    Hello current and future Primrose parents. My name is Inna Shepard and I am the Director for Primrose School of East Windsor. I am so happy to have found Primrose Schools as I feel my values and philosphy about childrens development and wellbeing clearly align with Primrose.

    I have 17 years of early childhood leadership experience across different schools and programs. I hold an MS in Education from Brooklyn College.  I have always wanted to be in the educator and started my career as a camp counselor in high school. I love to be in the classroom, building a relationship with the children, helping the teachers and ensuring all state and primrose standards are being followed. My goal is to partner with parents to ensure that children get the best education and care and that any concerns are addressed proactively.

    I am very excited about the amazing Primrose curriculum that will help your children become well rounded community citizens. To me social, emotional, and cognitive development is very important to develop at an early age. I enjoy watching children learn in a preschool setting without realizing that they are learning. 

    I live in Freehold, NJ with husband Rob, daughter Sammy, son Zachary and two dogs named Dunkin the Goldendoodle and Donut the Jack Russell (any body want a dunkin donut?).  I love traveling, especially exploring new countries and cultures. Ask me about my latest trip when we meet! I look forward to partnering with you.

    Lead Teacher

    Hi, my name is Shagufta Tamboli and I’m excited to be a Lead teacher here at Primrose School of East Windsor.I’m looking forward to getting to know your child and for you to get to know me! I love teaching young kids because early childhood education can help develop strong self esteem, independence and build brighter future. This will be my sixth year working with children and helping them reach their potential. 

    I have a bachelors degree and additional certifications from Middlesex County College in New Jersey. 

    Prior to working at Primrose, I worked as an Assistant Teacher for 2 years, teaching 4-5 yr olds Math and English. I also led science experiments and arts and crafts projects. Before that I was the Kids Academy Supervisor for 3 years where I supervised kids aged 2 months to 12 years old also providing homework help.

    My favorite children’s book is “The Kissing Hand.” I read this book to my own kids when they were preschoolers as it explains how the comfort of a mother’s kiss can make the child easily breeze through the first few days of preschool. 

    In my free time, I love to read different genres of novels - especially thriller and romance. One of my favorite things to do is curl up in a corner of a room with a novel in one hand and a mug of hot tea in the other. Ask me about the book I am reading now, when we meet.

    I have always had a passion for cooking and bringing a smile to people’s faces with my food. 

    I graduated from a vocational high school for culinary arts. During my time there, I took part in multiple competitions and won scholarships. After high school, I spent some time at the Culinary Institute of America to earn my certification of food safety and food nutrition.
