Bridge School Staff
Amanda Warren and Joslyn Cassady are Co-Director Mentors of Bridge School. Amanda is also a Home Center Teacher.
Bridge School has three Home Center Teachers: Amanda, Noah and Cynthia. Home Center Teachers teach language arts, math, science, and enrichment electives. In addition, these teachers are responsible for a “Home Center”, which is a multi-grade community advisory. There are two older Home Centers (grades 3-6) and one younger Home Center (grades K-2). A student usually remains with a Home Center teacher for two or three years, and the Home Center teacher is their primary mentor for social-emotional growth.
Diane Hare teaches language arts and math. Dave Majzler is the enrichment teacher and oversees the after-school program Bridge Bananas.
Bridge School has an active and committed group of parent volunteers, who teach Explorations and Arts courses, work with classes on a daily or weekly basis and also substitute for teachers.
We benefit so greatly from our volunteers' generous offers of knowledge and time and treasure this role at Bridge School. Our community is rich with committed Volunteers with talent and an interest in sharing.
Volunteer positions are vital to the diversity and expertise we value at Bridge School.
