Our Directors

Elaine Rosi Academy for Children's Directors

Executive Director Elaine Rosi

Elaine Rosi, owner of Elaine Rosi Academy for Children

Elaine Rosi has 33 years experience in educating children. Her education spans from an International Certification for Montessori preschool, teaching children 3, 4, 5, and 6 years of age to using her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education to teach Kindergarten accumulating 17 years teaching experience. She also completed her Master of Arts degree in Education which enhanced her work with teachers as she became a Director of a Child Development Center from 1996 to 2000.

This leadership role led her to accept a job in 2001 as Director of Martha Rounds Academy in Brentwood, Missouri which she and her husband Richard Rosi purchased in September 2002. She remained the Director of their school until 2005 when she and Richard purchased their second preschool in Wildwood, Missouri. She now holds the title of Owner and Executive Director of Elaine Rosi Academy For Children.
Richard has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business successfully working in the corporate sales and management field for 30 years. Together Elaine and Richard work side by side developing innovative programs that enhance children’s preschool experiences. Both welcome families with open arms to visit their schools and learn about our successful preschool programs.

Director Bethany Hanson


Bethany Hanson is the director of our Wildwood location. She is a St. Louis native and opted to stay in town for college. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Webster University. Prior to becoming our Wildwood Director, Bethany spent 7 years teaching young children in a classroom environment.

Bethany possesses a true passion for educating young children, and she accomplishes this by working closely with teachers and creating meaningful bonds with families. She enjoys supporting and encouraging children to explore their personal curiosities and to use their individuality to create a lifelong love of learning.

Bethany’s goal is to create and support a strong and encouraging learning environment that also allows children and their families to feel safe, welcome, and confident.

Bethany lives with her husband, David, her 3 year old son, Camden, her 1 year old daughter, Blake, and their Goldendoodle, Charlie. She enjoys crafting of many sorts: repurposing furniture, embroidery, vinyl work, and crocheting. She is a self-proclaimed “Starbucks lover,” her favorite color is purple, and her favorite animal is the elephant. She enjoys playing volleyball, biking, spending time with her family, and going to her son’s soccer and t-ball games.
