This week's spotlight is on Mrs. A! She is one of our ESOL teachers at GFES.

We love having Mrs. A with us at Glen Forest ES! Let's learn more about her....

Staff Member:   Mrs. A

Years at Glen Forest ES:   I’ve been at Glen Forest for many, many years, more than I can count!

Why do you love working at Glen Forest?  A Truly very rewarding  reason is the children’s smiles and their genuine expression of happiness when they see their teachers, greet them and share with them their  precious stories.  The second reason is the diversity that is the heart of Glen Forest. In my earlier days at GF I remember being taken by an ethnic fashion parade as moms walked their children to school that  morning. It was not International Day or Night! It was  the day to day reality of Glen Forest.

Book you are currently reading:    I’m actually reading a spiritual book: God and You: Person to Person. I’m also reading The Mighty Miss Malone, by Christopher Paul Curtis, who once came and met with the children of Glen Forest.

Hobbies/Interests:  I like to read, bake, plant and make crafts.  I enjoy learning about different cultures.
