Years at NGFS: 6
Bebe joined NGFS in 2017, first working as the Front Desk Receptionist at the Lower School for several years before moving to the admissions team as a part-time Admissions Associate.
She is a former Health and PE teacher who taught for almost 20 years. Her former schools include Colfax Elementary School in Guilford County Schools, Mont'Kiara International School in Malaysia, Shanghai American School in China, The International School of Beijing in China, American Embassy School in India, and Lincoln Community School in Ghana. Bebe loves international life!
She also loves to travel, read, and spend time with her husband and her dog, Scout. They enjoy their home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Before I was the Head of School, I was a Parent at New Garden Friends School. When I became the Director of Admissions years ago, I loved welcoming new families to our school. Helping them come to understand our unique mission of meeting students where they are was particularly joyous. Today, when I speak with families who have been in our community for only a short time, I love hearing the stories of how their children are finding their voices AND learning how to listen deeply.
