Mike Sapperstein, Co-owner of Celebree School of Fishtown, is so happy to serve the families of Fishtown and provide a place to “Protect, Educate and Nurture” every child that walks through the doors. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Public Financial Management from Indiana University Bloomington in 2008, Mike went on to complete his Masters in Accounting from the University of Baltimore in 2012.
While he spent the past 12+ years working as a CPA, Mike unlocked his true passion for education through his volunteer experiences tutoring undergraduate students and coaching youth hockey. It was these experiences that ultimately inspired him to pursue a career in early childhood education.
In addition to his professional pursuits, Mike is a dedicated member of the Jewish Community Services Board, where he serves as Assistant Treasurer, and the Boys’ Latin School of Maryland Alumni Board, where he is the Treasurer. He is passionate about giving back to his community and is dedicated to making a lasting impact on the lives of the children and families he serves.

Currently a high school social studies teacher at her alma-mater, Caroline is eager to apply her expertise to her new role at Celebree and will be an invaluable asset in the areas of child, parent, and teacher advocacy. She graduated from West Virginia University in 2008 with a degree in Political Science before earning her Masters of Arts in Education from Johns Hopkins University in 2010. Caroline is excited to use her experience in education to help make a positive difference in the lives of the students, families, and educators at her new school.
