Dear Bay Farm Families,
After a robust recruitment process, we are thrilled to introduce our new ELII Humanities Lead Teacher, Lindsey Moss. Lindsey joins us from San Francisco, where she is currently teaching 4th grade at Contra Costa Jewish Day School. From the first read of Lindsey's resume, it was clear to the hiring committee that she possesses a unique combination of skills, experience, and drive. While we began our national search and initial rounds of interviewing prior to the COVID crisis, the extraordinary nature of the situation, provided the hiring committee the opportunity to watch Lindsey run her virtual classroom. It was clear to us that Lindsey is a teacher who thrives on challenges. We were amazed at the level of engagement and individualization. Lindsey's students did not miss a beat during her school's closure, and it was clear that the relationships Lindsey built with her students before going virtual fueled the success of their distance learning experience.
Born and raised in Northern Pennsylvania, Lindsey was a Dean Scholarship recipient at The New School in New York City, where she received her Bachelor's Degree in History. For the last ten years, Lindsey has been on a journey to bring high-quality education to students around the world. She comes to Bay Farm with a strong background in international relations, having spent several years teaching elementary students in Vietnam and in an administrative role as the Assistant Head Teacher of School at Kinder Kids International School in Japan. As an educator, Lindsey is someone who has searched far and wide to better understand the best way to serve children and teens in an ever-changing world. Her passion for creativity, innovation, and positivity are significant assets to the ELII classroom.
We look forward to welcoming her to Bay Farm this fall.
Thank you for your support,
