It’s difficult to express in words all that’s special about The Gregory School and why I love teaching here. Most importantly, our students are a kind and sweet lot...talented, inquisitive, energetic and highly creative. It’s both a joy and a huge privilege to spend several years with such young people as they grow and mature, meet increasingly difficult challenges, learn to persevere, and develop both passion and empathy. Life at The Gregory School is a fine balance between excitement, surprises and opportunities to explore new avenues and the reinforcement and deepening of essential life lessons. Truly, The Gregory School is one of a kind...a real gem. I cannot imagine teaching anywhere else.
