Faculty & Staff

Our Team

Our incredible faculty consists of classroom teachers, specialty teachers, and assistants. The primary classes are staffed with two teachers, while the upper grade classes are staffed with a lead teacher and a full-time associate or assistant. All classroom teachers are credentialed and many hold advanced degrees. Members of both the faculty and administration participate in regular professional development through conferences, workshops, and in-service training.

We are united by a life-long dedication to learning and a true love and respect for children. We share the belief in the value of solid academic preparation, sound moral and ethical principles, and each child’s ability to succeed.

Together, we emphasize a great variety of strategies and best practices connected to making a positive difference in the lives of children.
