The Teachers and Staff

The opportunity to create a brand new school is a once-in-a generation chance to build something great for our kids. It calls out to the creative spark of our teachers and staff, attracting an amazing talent pool from which we've been able to select a truly outstanding group.

Please Note we know we're missing teacher pics and bios! New teacher bio info and photos will be added to our list below as soon as they're submitted by our teachers. All grade assignments are current for the 2015-16 school year. Thanks for your patience!

For a full list of current teachers and staff, contact information and more, including updates from Ms. Bliquez, our Librarian, and Art Room News from Ms. Baker, visit the official school website hosted by SPS.
