Meet the Kindergarten Staff
Before joining Living Stones in the fall 2018, Kelsey Merz spent six years teaching at Kigali International Community School in Rwanda, where she was the kindergarten teacher and department head of the lower elementary school. Ms. Merz has a special passion for students with disabilities, especially in the classroom, where she works toward creating an atmosphere where all students feel loved, safe, and encouraged. Her unique global perspective, committed and lively personality, and blend of heart and skills makes her an ideal fit for LSA.
As one of the first teachers on staff, Jessica Gamble helped shape the LSA mission during those critical early years. Mrs. Gamble is also a terrific teacher, known for having a special knack for building relationships with those in her classroom. For the 2020-21 school year, Mrs. Gamble serves our full-time remote learning students.
