Directors

Kacia Sato

Hello Broadmoor!  My name is Kacia Sato and I can’t wait to meet you! I am an Oakland/San Leandro native who attended San Leandro schools before moving to Chico, CA where I received my B.A. in Bilingual Liberal Studies. I am a Special Education Credentialed Teacher and taught right here in San Leandro for nearly 10 years before starting my family. My husband, Brian (also a teacher), and I have 3 boys aged 12, 9 and 5. My relationship with Broadmoor began in 2009 when I attended Tot Time with my first son. I fell in love with Broadmoor! The inclusive atmosphere carefully tended by the directors, the joy and curiosity of the children, the community of parents and caregivers…..I was hooked! Since then, all three of my boys have attended and (sniff, sniff) graduated from this beloved preschool. I just couldn’t say goodbye, so I applied to be a director and here we are! I look forward to serving Broadmoor with Ms. Liz in the years ahead. See you soon!

Hi Broadmoor! I’m so excited to be one of your new directors! I have lived all over the world but we landed in Pleasanton when I was in third grade. I went to CSU Hayward for my BA and my elementary credential, then taught in Pleasanton, Dublin and Alameda for about 10 years before starting my family and staying home with my children. My husband, Ron, and I moved our family to San Leandro at the beginning of 2017. I googled coop preschools and found Broadmoor. We were sold on the school as soon as we heard the previous directors start speaking about the program. We have 3 boys, aged 5, 3, and almost 1. Our oldest just finished his 2 years at Broadmoor and our middle son is eagerly awaiting his AM year. I’m excited to work with Ms. Kacia to bring Broadmoor families many more years of fun, play-based activities that our school is known for. I look forward to meeting you!
