Meet Our Team
“GSES is Such a happy place. Everyone is so positive and loving and focused on what is best for children! The families are so supportive of their children and the school. I am so glad to be a part of this community.”
“I am so happy to be a part of the GSES team as we all love what we do!”
“I love being a part of the GSES family and think that it is truly the best community of families and staff in Austin!”
“GSES holds a special place in my life having been here as a parent and now a teacher. We all make a great team and I look forward to coming to work everyday!”
“I am now teaching a second generation of GSES children! The opportunity to teach the children whose parents I taught is a true gift I hold close to my heart.”
“GSES is such a special place - it's an extended family, not just a school. I love the children - it is truly a privilege to be able to see the world through their eyes.”
“It is amazing to experience the pure joy of learning during this special year in the Threes classroom.”
"I love the closeness of the staff and teachers-we love what we do and we love to be together.”
"It’s an amazing experience to see how quickly the kids grow and learn here at GSES. I love the connection between the church nursery and school, and I have the opportunity to see church families and preschool families come together on Sundays."
“I work with the best teachers and administrators at GSES! Our community is extremely supportive and wonderful.”
“My roots to Good Shepherd run deep. My daughter attended the school and we continue to be involved in the Parish community. The love here is palpable and it nourishes my soul to the bone.”
"I love that Good Shepherd treasures the whole child - each one's spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development. Every adult in the school loves what's unique about each child's playful, curious spirit, supports each child's ups and downs, and actively promotes each one's interests. It's a joy to come to work in this place each and every day."
"I love the people I work with, especially being able to work with children and their families for so many years. Our programs are play based, and each year is unique and special for the children."
"I love seeing the smiles on the children’s faces when we are on the playground, especially when I get to swing with them! I also love listening to their sweet little voices in carpool while waiting for their families."
"I love creating a welcoming, loving, and fun environment where kids can laugh while learning basic musical elements, and important life skills. Music and movement helps children with social and emotional skills, develops confidence and strengthens fine and gross motor skills. I get to introduce basic elements of music to these little creative and magical humans which lays the groundwork for their future musical endeavors."
"GSES provides a supportive, caring and fun environment for me to pursue my passion - sharing stories with children. I love seeing kids' faces light up with delight, curiosity, or discovery. The support of the GSES community enables me to keep updating our shelves with the newest and best children's books.

"I love working with all the teachers and staff. The children's singing and laughter bring me happiness even on a challenging day. I smile walking into school each day, and I hope to be as positive and inspirational to others as they have been to me."
