    Mrs. Hannah

    Director of Education

    I am so excited to get to finally get to introduce myself to y’all! My name is Hannah Pizzolato and I am the newly instated Curriculum Coach at the Primrose School of Firewheel. My husband (Gabe), our dog (Bear), and I just moved to Rowlett from Denver at the end of March. While in Denver, I taught the Private Kindergarten class at the Primrose School of Thornton for 3 years. I have loved learning and implementing the Primrose Curriculum and seeing firsthand how much children flourish from the well-balanced approach and how engaged they are in their daily learnings.

    Prior to living in Colorado, I was born and raised in the state of Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts- Graphic Design. I decided shortly thereafter that my passions did not lie behind a computer screen and I began my journey to obtaining my teachers license! I taught second grade in New Orleans for 2 years and loved every minute of it. When my husband’s job relocated us to Denver in 2018, I began my incredible journey with Primrose as the Private Kindergarten teacher. While in Denver, we were avid hikers and grew fond of exploring America’s incredible National Parks; it is now our mission to see as many as we can! We also got married, after 5 years of dating, in Rocky Mountain National Park last June surrounded by closest friends and family after major adjustments (thanks Covid) and it was more incredible than we ever imagined.

    We are thrilled to now be living in the great state of Texas, once again surrounded by delicious food and southern hospitality. I can’t wait to begin this journey and finally get to meet y’all over the coming weeks. I feel very humbled for this opportunity and can’t wait to witness the growth of your kiddos during their Primrose journey!

    Curriculum Coach

    Hello! My name is Olga Ramírez. I was born in San Luis Potosí Mexico but was raised here in Texas. I am the oldest of three children.

    I hold an Associates in Science and I'm currently attending Texas Woman's University. I am in the process of completing my B.S in Biology Education. I have over 4 years of early childhood education and it all began here at Primrose School of Firewheel! I was the Infant teacher and was then promoted to office staff. I then had to move to Denton, TX for school where I worked at another Primrose location as the Explorers teacher. I am now back and I am so excited to pick up where I left off! I love everything about the Primrose curriculum and environment. I love watching the children reach new milestones and celebrating them every chance we get.

    I am excited to be part of the Primrose School of Firewheel family as it gives me the opportunity to do what I love: teach young minds.

    I cannot wait to build positive relationships with all the staff and families here! I look forward to getting to know every family and being part of this amazing school.
