Faculty & Staff

The teachers at the Homestead School are highly qualified educators often with professional experiences outside of education (e.g., award-winning author, biologist, architect, and more) and, therefore, can contribute unique talents and skills. Many of our staff have spent extended periods of time in different parts of  the world and bring their unique experiences back to our campus.
