Meet the St. Mark Team

Administrative Team

Katie Plumb, Director, has been with SMLP since June 2022. Katie began her teaching career in 2016 after completing her Master’s in Early Childhood Education. During graduate school, she realized her passion for preschool and ensuring that all young children have access to quality, affordable care and education. The culmination of all of her job experience led her to St. Mark, where she believes is the perfect place to call a “home away from home.” She loves getting to support and advocate for teachers, watch children engage in activities that cultivate wonder and spark creativity, and to build relationships with the most wonderful families in the area. 

In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and twin toddlers and hopes they will love traveling as much as she does as they get older. Her favorite thing to do is ride around and look at holiday lights on houses in December.

Tami Sharff, Assistant Director, has been with SMLP since July 2014. Tami had the privilege and joy of helping create the new program at SMLP that started in September 2014. She worked as Interim Director from October 2020 – June 2022. Tami is passionate about sharing her love of learning through play and the natural exploration of the outdoors with young children. She has been working in Early Childhood Education for 15 years. 

Tami and her husband, Jeff, have three amazing daughters, Julia, Alex, and Livi. Tami has spent many years cheering her daughters on in soccer, gymnastics, volleyball and DI. Tami enjoys hiking, kayaking, running, reading, and cooking/baking with her girls. She enjoys longs walks on the beach searching for seashells and sand dollars.
Shannon Treakle, Afternoon Manager, has been with SMLP since January 2017. Shannon started in the Early Childhood Education field in 1997 when her daughter began preschool and Shannon found her passion in life. She has been at SMLP since 2016 and just loves our little school, the relationships she has grown here, and seeing the kids develop the skills to be kind and contributing community members.
