Born and raised in Los Angeles, Liz is a proud alumna of Marlborough School for Girls. She fell in love with the Bay Area when attending UC Berkeley where she obtained her BA in Social Welfare. After completing her MEd at UCLA, Liz taught for year in Spain at the American School of Madrid. While she enjoyed living and learning abroad, the opportunity to teach middle school math at her alma mater, Marlborough, drew her back to California.
During her 23 years of teaching, Liz has taught grades K-9th in independent, public, coed, and single sex schools including Gloria R Davis School in SF, Athenian School in Danville, Westside Neighborhood School in Los Angeles, and Julia Morgan School for Girls in Oakland. During her twelve years of tenure, Liz was a founding teacher for JMSG and wore many hats as teacher mentor, summer program director, leader of CAIS accreditation process, and parent education coordinator in addition to teaching middle school math. For five years, she served on JMSG’s admission committee reading files, giving family tours, and helping to craft the new sixth grade class.
Liz joined the GMS staff in 2015. As a graduate of a girls’ school and long-time teacher of middle school girls, she is dedicated to the education of young girls and understands personally the transformative experience of attending an all-girls middle school. She is excited to welcome the future students and families of GMS.
