“I knew I wanted to teach at FBS the moment I crossed the entrance door for the first time. Each of our boys is unique and has great potential for success. It is a privilege to be part of a community where parents, school staff, and students are a team looking ahead in the same direction. As a teacher, I hope to help create an environment where the boys feel excited about every bit of learning, and can thrive.”
