Adele Pastre
Closter Lower School

I have been with Palisades since 2014 as an Assistant Teacher at both the lower school and camp. I help build children’s confidence, independence, ability and need to share, listen, follow directions, and use their minds as a creative tools. As the daughter of Italian immigrants, I speak Italian fluently and also French in moderation. I am a Piano instructor and take pride in having enlightened and enhanced the minds of many young people. My life has been enriched throughout my education, my 41 years of marriage, the raising of two accomplished women, and the wondrous gift of being blessed with grandchildren. My work at Palisades is so rewarding because I help children develop their intuition, intelligence, and independence. Palisades emphasizes teamwork and working as part of a team helps achieve greater success with each child’s development.
