Meet Our Teachers

The George School Children’s Center faculty is dedicated to helping very young learners grow and explore their world and themselves. Our teachers, many of whom have taught at the center for a long time, share a passion for working with young children and, thanks to a low student-teacher ratio, develop close bonds with and a keen understanding of each youngster in their care.

We invite you to come for an admission tour so you can meet these caring individuals in person and see if they are the right teachers, mentors, guides, coaches, and inspiration for your child.

“I have formed lifelong relationships with many of my students. There is no better experience than bumping into a young adult who smiles and greets me by name. While I stand there trying to figure out who they are, they start regaling me with stories of our experiences together—turning over rocks and finding bugs, following animal tracks in the snowy field, rolling down the hill, collecting sticks, balancing on a fallen tree, or simply sitting together reading a book. These brief interludes often end with a hug, and I leave knowing I have had the privilege of touching a child’s life forever.”

“I went to a Montessori charter school during my childhood that used materials to enhance learning. I enjoyed my teachers and still remember how much I loved the environment at that school. The George School Children’s Center reminds me of the Montessori school because the children learn “hands on” both inside and outside of the classroom. I am excited to make a difference in the lives of the children and help them experience learning as fun and enjoyable!”

“Growing up and observing past teachers has inspired me to want to be a teacher myself. The tenderness and patience the teachers have had with me are traits I admire and use every day. I hope to lead the children down a path of success.”

“Working at the George School Children’s Center is wonderful. Since I assist in all four classrooms, I enjoy getting to know all the children, helping them to learn, and watching them grow throughout the year. The beautiful campus offers many opportunities for the children to explore and play.”



Taylor Johnson
Young Toddler Lead Teacher
AA Bucks County Community College

“I always knew I wanted to work with kids and coming to the George School Children’s Center was like coming home, a place where colleagues and families make you feel welcome and appreciated. GSCC is a very hands-on environment. I look forward to learning and growing with the children each and every day.”

“From an early age, I knew I always wanted to work with children. They have such great energy. There is no limit to their imagination and they see the world in a great way. I like to encourage their individualism and I like to teach them about their importance in the George School community and beyond. Over the years, the Children’s Center and George School itself have become like a second home to me.”

“Since high school, I have had a passion for working with young children. When I came to the Children’s Center, I started as a Pre-K teacher but returned to teach young toddlers after having my own children. Over the years, I’ve seen numerous infants later stroll by as high school students. I admire how the center encourages hands-on learning, rather than sitting at a table with worksheets, and look forward to watching each child’s excitement when they achieve something and proudly show you.”


Stephanie Nutter
Pre-K Lead Teacher
AA Bucks County Community College

“Being part of a program that allows children to lead their learning on a campus full of opportunities for exploration is part of the reason I came back to the Children’s Center. In my twenty-two years of teaching in early childhood settings, there is no other program that embraces the whole child on a campus where they can connect with nature.”

“The GSCC represents quality learning, support, and a diverse community. In my 20-plus years of early childhood instruction, I have taught preschool and all-day kindergarten. Now I am enjoying the different challenges of working in the infant room, where I get to be a part of children’s first milestones and help nurture, guide, and LOVE them.”



Susan Selby
Pre-K / Young Toddler Assistant Teacher
AA University of Phoenix

“After having the experience of teaching overseas for 5 years, and spending over a decade working as a nanny here in Bucks County, I am so excited to bring both of those passions (teaching, and a love of children) together here in an Assistant Teacher’s role at the George School Children’s Center. There are few things that have brought as much reward and meaning to my life as the privilege of helping a child grow and learn. Showing them kindness, offering them affirmation and encouragement, providing moments of laughter and fun are all part of each day. I go home at the end of the day with the hope that all of those little things have made a difference in their lives, and in the world!”


Samantha Rhea
Pre-K Assistant Teacher

“I’ve been working with children in many capacities for the last fifteen years; from being a personal babysitter to having my own classroom in a school and working at the Children’s Center as a substitute. Being part of the George School Children’s Center (GSCC) has been an enriching experience for me personally as well as professionally. Since being here, I have grown as an educator, and I’ve been privileged to see how the children have flourished through each stage at GSCC.”



Dorothy Rogers
Infant Lead Teacher
BS Gwynedd Mercy University

“I have been working with children for over ten years and most of the age groups I have worked with are ages three months to five years old. I look forward to ensuring success, displaying a gentle and nurturing personality, and the patience to assist each infant to mature cognitively. I will be able to assist in developing the infants’ social skills as they interact with each other and I cannot wait to play a part in the infants’ milestones and give them all the love and support they will need on their journey.”

“I want to have a positive impact on young lives, and GSCC is one of the best environments to do so. It has not only allowed me to help enrich children’s lives, but has also enriched my own with new experiences, knowledge, and friendships.”

“Being part of the George School community has been a wonderful journey. Playing with and teaching many exciting young children (and their families) and working alongside my co-workers has made it a fun learning experience. I look forward to our morning walks when we can witness each season on our beautiful campus—and see the horses.”
