Gina Anglin, 3-Year-Old Lead Teacher
Education: Child Development Associate degree
I moved to Fayetteville at the age of thirteen. Having three younger siblings enrolled at The New School it quickly became a familiar place. During my senior year of high school I began helping out with the plays at The New School doing behind-the-scenes work. After graduating in 2003 I worked as an assistant with various age groups until 2008. In 2008 I received my CDA and moved into my current position as 3-Year-Old Lead Teacher.
What makes a good teacher at The New School?
A patient and empathetic person who is passionate about teaching children.
What are you trying to encourage and instill in our students?
For them to be confident, independent and proud of who they are.
In your opinion, what makes The New School so special?
the one-on-one attention that the children get every day and the bonds that are built throughout the year with not only the child but the families as well. New School makes every family feel welcomed!
Apart from your teaching role, what else are you involved with at school?
After my work in the classrooms I help take children to tennis during the week. I also volunteer every year for Fun Run.
