Elyse Shamah Robison
May 16, 1974 – May 23, 2012
With great sadness we let you know of the passing of Elyse (Shamah) Robison on May 23, 2012. She was just 38. Elyse was diagnosed with colon cancer in the fall of 2010. She started at Discovery Schoolhouse in the summer of 1995, and moved from Teacher, to Lead Teacher, to Assistant Director. Elyse was instrumental in running the school every day, and was an integral part of it’s soul. She was tirelessly dedicated to the school and her family, always putting the children of both first above all other concerns. She was a kind, gentle, nurturing, and calming influence on the program and everyone around her. Elyse’s optimistic nature, soft spoken demeanor, and calming spirit permeated the school’s atmosphere. It’s hard to imagine Discovery Schoolhouse without her. She will be sorely missed every day. [Read more about Elyse...]
