GLM Staff

During the 2020-2021 school year at GLM and due to COVID-19 physical distancing protocols each classroom family will operate in two separate “pods”. Of the two pods, one pod will house the Lead Teacher and the other will house a “Lead-Support” teacher. Each pod will have 10-12 students. A third teacher, a “Support Teacher” will support both pods by covering breaks and stepping into either classroom “pod” throughout the day. As our Toddler classrooms are typically 12 or less students, they will continue to pod in their same classroom spaces with a Lead and Support teacher (as per the required 6:1 ratio). A third teacher will support both toddler pods by covering breaks and stepping into either pod throughout the day.

Teachers are listed by classroom.
