We are so happy to welcome our new faculty to Good Shepherd this fall! Hannah Aronson will be teaching third grade; Saskia Price will serve as our new Director of Extended Day; and Jennifer Sharpe is our new school nurse. Read a little bit about them:
Hannah Aronson: I recently graduated from Davidson College with an honors degree in sociology and data science. Originally from the D.C. area, I now call Richmond home. I enjoy traveling and recently spent a summer in Cambodia and a semester studying abroad in Argentina. Passionate about education, I love working with children. My experience includes being a tutor, summer education intern, teacher's assistant, and researcher. I am looking forward to the school year and am excited to help my students have an amazing time at Good Shepherd!
Saskia Price: Hello! In early 2018, I began working for Good Shepherd with Monica Moehring through the Creative Dramatics curriculum, and since 2019, I have served as a substitute teacher. In late 2018, I graduated from VCU with a BA in English and philosophy, but I have spent my life working as a theatrical costumer, stage manager, film production manager, and film producer. I look forward to expanding my career in education as the director of the Extended Day Program. My goal in EDP is to create an environment where our students feel they have the space to decompress from a full day of school, while still having the opportunity to do their homework and foster friendships.
Outside of my theater work, film work, and Good Shepherd, I spend my time reading, writing, drawing, painting, modifying digital games, sewing, and hanging out with my partner-in-life Mr. Moose, our three cats (Sage, Juniper, and Barley), and our two lizards (Pancake and Lemon Merengue). My life passions include story-art, animals, astronomy, and exploration.
Jennifer Sharpe: I am so excited to start my first year at Good Shepherd Episcopal School. I graduated from Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania, with a BS in psychology and graduated from Molloy College in Rockville Centre, New York, with a BS in nursing. I grew up in New York and worked on cardiac, medical surgical, and maternity units at Saint Francis Hospital and New York Presbyterian Hospital. My family and I moved to Richmond in 2005. Since moving to Virginia, I have worked at LeafSpring School and Mills E. Godwin as a school nurse. My husband and I have twin girls who are 16 and a 14-year-old son. We have one dog and three cats. In my spare time I enjoy reading, fostering dogs, gardening, and spending time with my family.
