Our Faculty & Staff

Our dedicated faculty and staff are the jewels of our community who have a deep commitment to guiding children in becoming the amazing individuals they will be. All of our faculty are native speakers or have extremely strong fluency on the language of the classroom. They are dedicated to helping their students become bilingual and biliterate global citizens along with supporting their development, their social and emotional growth, and their academic learning. Each one brings a rich culture and background to their students and to our school at large.
