I love our small community and family-like atmosphere! Even though I have taught here for 15 years, I find that no two years have been the same. The unique mix of children that walk through my classroom door makes each day an interesting, exciting, and engaging teaching adventure!

Wonderful students, supportive parents, talented colleagues (especially paraprofessionals and staff) and administrators who help my students learn and support my efforts to teach

MGS is a great place to work because it feels like family here. Ideas are supported and encouraged. While there are certainly challenges every year, I would not be the teacher I am without the support of my fellow MGS staff.

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. What I never would have guessed is how I would be blessed to call my coworkers family. I am grateful to be a part of the staff at our school. MGS is a special place full of heart in which to teach and learn.

After working in other school districts, I immediately noticed the warm and family like atmosphere when I started at MGS. The staff here has so much knowledge and expertise which has helped me grow and learn as a tea

It was in the halls of MGS where I fell in love with learning and where I was inspired to become a teacher. Once a Redbird, always a Redbird! There is nowhere else I'd rather be! I am proud to carry on the tradition with my own children!

Regardless of one's role at MGS, we work together to support each other. We help one another, cheer for each other, and celebrate together. We value each person in our MGS community!

I completed my student teaching in first grade at MGS and I felt welcome right from the start. Our school is also so fortunate to have such strong community support and amazing parent volunteers!
