Our lower elementary grades are full of energy and exciting experiences. Staffed by caring, competent teachers, each class offers a warm and safe environment to develop academically and socially.
Mrs. Jessica Fiore joined the school in fall of 2020 with both a recently earned master's degree and also 6 years experience as a teacher's assistant. Whether helping children explore God's creation with hands-on activities or pushing them to overcome challenges, Mrs. Fiore clearly lives out her calling. She was married just this past November - congratulations!
Since fall 2021, Mrs. Elisa Zou has led the first grade classroom. Originally from Washington State, she enjoys sightseeing with Jiuen, her husband and welcomed daughter Jada in the fall of 2022. Prior to joining FCS, Mrs. Zou had four years' experience educating young children. She actively serves with Blueprint Ministries.
Ms. Melissa Combs comes with several years’ experience working with young children. She has already interacted with our school when they visited McGoldrick Library, her former employer. Ms. Combs will be assisting the first grade. If she is not hiking with her family, she is likely playing ultimate frisbee barefoot!
