Our Administration! 

Our Executive Director

Victoria Pruitt, MSW​

Victoria, or "Tory!," as she's much better known, is a well know staple in the early childhood community in Albuquerque. You'd be hard pressed to find a more passionate, devoted or natural early childhood educator. Little people are her calling, and she's spent a near lifetime bettering the lives of children and families in a range of settings. She's nearing a decade at St. Mark's and is a primary reason our nonprofit preschool is the exceptional organization distinctly recognized as the quality service and family-oriented school it is today. Tory believes that early education starts with caring for the most human qualities at the foundation of every child's life, and that every child deserves individualized, considerate, respectful, safe and caring educational experiences. She's a mentor, leader, administrator, social worker and teacher with an enormous heart. She feels the most joy when children are around her! If there's anything she can do to help your little one, or your family, don't hesitate to reach out!
