New Faculty: Beth Gaffga
Although a familiar face to many of our students, we are excited to welcome back to our community Beth Gaffga as our new Middle School English Teacher. Beth has a B.A. in History from Williams College and an M.Ed. from DePaul University.
Beth is a passionate educator who is interested in helping our young people learn and grow. She shared, "I am inspired by challenging students to ask questions and be curious. I love engaging young people in conversations about our world and our country as they grow to become future leaders. I love the energy of middle school life and the unexpected fun that a school day can bring."
In her free time, Beth enjoys watching World Cup soccer, hiking, snowshoeing in Colorado, and keeping up with her "high energy" five-year-old daughter. You'll probably catch her reading a crime novel or listening to a podcast and - as an adventure traveler - she has camped on a glacier, kayaked with whales, and hiked 100 miles around Mt. Blanc.
Congratulations to Emre Adabag, Margaret Broyles, Andrew Cheng, James Clinton, Samantha Detor, Gunnar Evenstad, Ekemini Jones, Grace Medeiros, Sam Schoenecker, Dylan Vincent, and Niels Wu, who were named National Merit Semifinalists by the College Board.
Beth Gaffga returns to Breck as our new Middle School English Teacher.
