Mrs. Paula Dolinsky has been teaching at St. Matthew’s Preschool for many years. She majored in Early Childhood Education at both Santa Monica College and University of California, Los Angeles.
In her classroom, Paula helps support the children to grow socially and emotionally in a nurturing environment. The students learn respect for themselves and the world around them. Paula is passionate about helping children appreciate nature and art. She often finds inspiration for her curriculum from the natural world, incorporating nature with academics. In her spare time, Paula hikes the Santa Monica Mountains, rides her beach cruiser, and enjoys the outdoors as often as she can. She is an avid reader of British murder mysteries. Paula also volunteers at the Self-Realization Fellowship Shrine on Sunset in her spare time, and lives near the beach with her husband, Bill and their two cats, Spike and Angel.
