“I am so excited to be teaching at Fahan. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the girls in the Junior School and the dedicated and enthusiastic staff. When my husband and I toured the School as prospective parents, we were so impressed by what we saw: the amazing grounds and resources but, more importantly, the high level of engagement and enthusiasm displayed by students, their friendliness and openness, and their wonderful relationships with their teachers. I love that at Fahan, each student is respected and valued for who they are. Participation is valued over achievement. I love seeing my daughters flourish at Fahan and look forward to providing the same incredible opportunities for my own students.”
