Faculty and Staff

The FIDS faculty forms the heart of our school.  Each teacher contributes to the heart of the school, a heart which embraces each individual learner as part of our larger family.  Children are made to feel immediately safe and secure at FIDS and teachers are committed to working collaboratively with each family toward the success of every child.  Our teachers are extremely committed to the philosophy of the school, highly credentialed, and passionate about educating children.
