The day Mrs. Paula Dackermann visited an open house at Gerstell Academy, she felt as if she had come home. In 2006, she began her Gerstell career as a substitute teacher before joining Gerstell full-time later that year as a Kindergarten instructor.
Gerstell Academy senior and current student body president, Antonio Holland has known since middle school that he wanted to join a military service academy or attend college via the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program. This desire to push himself to his limits and serve our country certainly comes as no surprise to Gerstell teachers and classmates who have known Antonio since he became a Falcon way back in the second grade.
Mrs. Heather Snider joined Gerstell Academy in 2004 as the founding Director of our Before and Aftercare Child Care Program, developing it into the success it is today. In 2010, acting on her passion for teaching children, Mrs. Snider taught Intermediate Science and assumed additional responsibilities such as substitute teaching.
