I do this work because I hope, and I love; and, I believe that the world can be a better place when every child knows that her voice matters, and when the balance of power shifts enough to allow all of us to listen. Serviam is an agent for that magnitude of transformation.
B.S., Elementary Education/Spanish, Susquehanna University
Educating, inspiring, and transforming the lives of children is incredibly rewarding. Knowing that your lesson, shared experience, and involvement in a child's life is potentially shaping their future and who they want to be is a feeling that no amount of money can provide.

When I visited Serviam for the first time I met a student who told me that her goal was to learn as much as humanly possible. In that moment I knew that this was the right place for me. It is so important to give students who want to learn the best opportunity to do just that.

When I first stepped into Serviam, I knew it was a special place. Since then, I get to work with scholars exploring the world around us in science. Witnessing that moment when a person finally grasps a concept is what inspires me as a teacher, as well as learning new things myself. It is my philosophy that anyone who is willing can learn anything.
Social Studies & Graduate Support
I enjoy being a part of Serviam's team because I believe the positive reinforcement, challenging academics and social engagement oportunities found within these walls truly supports the whole Serviam scholar. My goal as Social Studies ~ History Instructor and Director of Graduate Support is to support Serviam's mission and make every possible opportunity available to our students to help make our graduates successful.

I'm happy to be part of an organization that believes in exceptional education for all children. Serviam’s educational model is successful because of the strong support students receive from both our faculty and community. That support begins on the first day of middle school and continues all through their college years! My role is to spread the word about Serviam’s mission to educate and improve the futures of underserved girls in the Greater Wilmington community.

SGA is an exceptional school with dedicated and inspiring teachers and staff with a mission that I truly believe in. I volunteer here to help in any way I can to further the program and goals of the school. For the past 6 years I have seen the program in action, and for the most part, the resulting transition of the students from 5th grade through 8th grade has been outstanding.
