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.
