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.”

“Having worked in childcare for 39 years, including owning and operating a small family-run daycare, I chose George School because of its friendly environment and the love shown to the children here. I especially enjoy watching the excitement in a child’s face when they learn something new and believe that children learn best when they are learning through play.”

“George School has been the best environment for me to start my teaching career. I have learned so much from working at George School Children’s Center. All the teachers are very helpful in helping me expand my knowledge and skills. I love the very welcoming community and being able to enjoy different parts of the campus. George School is a very unique school and allows children to grow up in a nurturing environment. I am so glad that George School gave me the opportunity to have my first job here.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Shaping the minds of young children is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. I love coming into work knowing that I’ll be a part of someone’s childhood and a part of their growth. Children are the future and if we can fill their first years with love, compassion, and curiosity, surely, the future will be bright. Every day at George School, we plant seeds of knowledge that will grow forever. Nurturing the young roots makes for a strong tree.”

Jane Morrison
Older Toddler Assistant Teacher

“I have always had a desire to work with little children. I raised four children of my own and loved volunteering in their classrooms. I love teaching children and experiencing things through their eyes and expressions. I am very excited to be part of the George School Children’s Center. The school grounds are absolutely beautiful. I look forward to taking many walks with the children in the future.”

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.”

 

Sherri Schechner
Infant Assistant Teacher
BA Kean College of New Jersey

“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.”

 

Dorothy Semkiw
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.”

Moriah Tamburello

“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.”

 

Karen Varian
Older Toddler Lead Teacher

“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.”
