Ylla Bishop
Executive Director

Ylla is an energetic administrator and teacher who loves to integrate creativity in all she does. She has a background in teaching children's yoga and while her education background is in Communication Arts and Non Profit Management most of her professional work has been in the area of children’s issues working on projects focused on early intervention and improvement of childhood disability policies and practices. Ylla started as a parent at SSDS and hung around the hallways too long after parent-participation shifts to where she landed the most incredible honor to teach at SSDS. The opportunity to work at SSDS is a great compliment to her interest in childhood issues as well as teaching kids yoga. After stepping in as Interim Director for 8 months, Ylla has recently accepted the position as Executive Director. And as for her own children - her daughter and son have since moved on from SSDS, but they continue to inspire her work!
