Looking for an Excellent Lower Group Teacher

by VickiLee on August 27, 2018

*Update: We have hired a wonderful new Lower Group teacher who is beginning November 14 and will overlap with Pamela through the end of November to ensure a smooth transition for our youngest students. Learn about Rachel Evernden here.


Walden unexpectedly and suddenly lost our new Lower Group teacher due to a family matter. Our recently retired Lower Group teacher has graciously stepped up to teach until we find a new teacher, allowing us to go through our usual rigorous process of finding a teacher with just the right fit for Walden.

Please share with those in your network who might be just right for the job!
