I taught preschool and kindergarten for 8+ years while raising my own children. For the past 5 years, I have taught both intermediate and middle-grade levels alongside observing the academic progression and social development of students up through these grade level trajectories. One thing I have really enjoyed about teaching at GNCS is the opportunity to cater to each student’s academic needs. I believe that this is the key to helping each student to become successful in his or her learning. I am fortunate to teach my students in a religious and moral environment that can help instill kindness and guide their everyday choices.
