GFW Recruitment

Our Committed Team

GFW Public Schools is home to a diverse and dedicated community of educators who excel in their fields. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding educational programs at all grade levels, and every member of our team provides an experience for our students that is exceptional and unsurpassed. We are fortunate to have a range of expertise represented in our district with veteran teachers, paraprofessionals, bus drivers, and more, as well as new professionals who are diving into their careers. Get to know a few of our team members!

The best thing about our district is our school family. The relationships that I have built with staff and students have created a foundation of love, support, and sense of belonging – not only at school, but in the community as well. The staff who work here are some of the hardest working and kindest people I have ever met. The small class sizes allow me to not only connect with my own students, but the students in other classrooms as well. Having the ability to know all of the students who attend GFW is an amazing thing. I am able to maintain relationships with my students and their families year after year. I love to watch them learn and grow into the amazing people they are!

How Shelby helps to Grow Future World Class Leaders:

I am passionate about the mission at GFW schools. I focus on encouraging my students to work hard, be kind, and stay true to who they are.

“We are a family here and we do what we can to take care of each other. I grew up as a Thunderbird and am so proud of our school system. I came back to teach in the place that I feel gave me so much and I am proud to help young Thunderbirds reach their goals. We have a lot of talented people here at GFW with so much growth potential. The students and staff are incredible here.”
