Meet the Sunrise Children’s Center faculty and staff

Experience and compassion

Sunrise Children’s Center faculty and staff include licensed New Hampshire early childhood educators and childcare professionals. All are experienced caregivers who love coming to work every day.

Lorraine Greer, director
Ms. Lorraine learned her solid work ethic, commitment to education, and love for community service from her parents as she grew up in New Bern, North Carolina. As early as high school, she knew she wanted to work with children. She earned a bachelor’s in both psychology and economics, with a minor in education from Sweet Briar College in Virginia and completed graduate studies in nursery school through eighth grade at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. She was also a competitive horse show jumper for more than 25 years. Her expansive experience across teaching and education administration for students from infants to eighth-graders includes roles as a teacher, camp director, assistant principal, principal/director, quality assurance officer, professional development instructor, and curriculum design specialist. She lives in Chester, New Hampshire, with her husband and son, and she is active in the community, where she volunteers as unit commissioner with Scouting BSA, an instructor for Destination Imagination, and serves on the board for ECE in Derry. Her hobbies include traveling, spending time with family, hiking, camping, and reading.

Sarah Dupuis, assistant director
Sarah graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s in elementary education and English from Keene State College. She has experience teaching preschool and kindergarten, and she became the assistant director of Sunrise in December 2017.  She was recently awarded credentials recognizing her qualifications and commitment to early childhood education from The New Hampshire Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration.
