GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School's Pamela Giles will teach the first grade for the 2014-2015 school year.

An experienced teacher, Giles has been a GBRSS faculty member for more than 25 years, successfully graduating three eighth-grade classes and has served on several board committees.

"As a teacher, Mrs. Giles brings not only her deep insights of the students, but also her passionate vision for the future of our school," said Interim Faculty Administrator Krista Palmer. "By virtue of her experience, she's building for the future right from the beginning, fortifying her students' capacities for imagination and learning. She is also wonderfully artistic, connecting all aspects of the curriculum to the child’s feelings and bringing subjects to life, so students are touched by what they learn."

Giles grew up in New York City and received her bachelor's in education from Empire State College. She completed her teacher apprenticeship at GBRSS, where all three of her children would eventually graduate.

"Here's what I told my current eighth-graders: 'You'll be moving on to Algebra II in ninth grade, but I'll be moving forward by going back to the beginning, to the alphabet, straight and curved lines, and stories.' I am thrilled about taking a new first grade," Giles said. "I so much look forward to meeting and getting to know the Class of 2022 and their families."

GBRSS is accepting student applications for early childhood through eighth grade for September and will hold a Meet the Teacher evening for an opportunity to meet Giles on Wednesday, April 2, at 7 p.m. For more information, call Tracy Fernbacher at 413-528-4015.
