My name is Michele Pane and I am the director at Our Children’s Place of Clifton Springs child care center. I have been the director since June 21st 2010. Before becoming the director I have been working with OCP since 2001. I have been the preschool teacher and Head Start teacher. I have an Associates degree in Early Childhood and a Bachelors degree in Elementary education. I have been involved in various committees within the child care center. I am the president of the Clifton Springs Ladies Fire Auxiliary.

Along with being passionate about education and working, I have a family of my own. I have been married for 9 years now and have two wonderful children. David is 8 years old and Libby is 4 years old. My children have attended Our Children’s Place ever since they were 6 weeks old. My family and I live in the Village of Clifton Springs and enjoy walking to work on occasion.

I am very excited to be a part of CCDP. I look forward to meeting and working with all the many families and people involved.
