Jessica Molloy, M.ED
FOUNDER

I have a Master's in Education from St Joseph's College and a BA in Social Work. I am also currently working on my Doctorate of Education ((EdD).  I am also trained in Lindamood Bell teaching techniques.

I founded WHILDE in 2012 because I believe in Personalized Learning and love helping young minds Learn and Grow and take risks while having fun at the same time.

As a teacher at both Public and Private Schools, I could not make the kind of difference that I wanted to with my students, so after tutoring for many years, I set out on my own.

I received my B.S. in Special Education from the University of Maine, Farmington, in 1999. Before, during, and after college, I worked with children and adults with amazing strengths and abilities as well as various social, emotional, and behavioral needs in Maine in school and other settings. I am entering my 23rd year of teaching, which in behavior is almost unheard of – but I love it as much now as I did when I first started.

INPERSON AND VIRTUAL COACH

I'm delighted to be part of the WHILDE coaching team, embarking on a journey that beautifully marries my passion for education, creativity, and personal development.

My role as an Education Technician, primarily spent alongside neurodiverse students, has been enlightening and rewarding. Daily, I navigate between classroom support and one-on-one sessions in a learning center, addressing the needs of students grappling with a spectrum of challenges, including Dyslexia, Autism, ADHD, PTSD, ODD, Sensory Processing Disorders, and more. With five years of dedicated service to these resilient learners, I've grown immeasurably, both personally and professionally.

Natalee Stotz
INPERSON AND VIRTUAL COACH

I have a Master’s of Education from Antioch University New England and a BS in Education and Bible from Cairn University. I have over 25 years of experience teaching and leading in small private schools where I have had the privilege to work with learners from 3rd grade through adulthood. I am a life-long learner and am always looking for opportunities to share my passions for experiential learning, the outdoors, and literacy, as well as opportunities to help others develop and share their own passions. One of my favorite experiences as an educator is to see a student gain confidence and meet with success in their learning and development as a whole person.
