I choose Atlanta Girls’ School because of so many reasons: I have taught many current students when they were younger and appreciate the incredible growth they’ve made while here; I appreciate the philosophical overlap between AGS and what I believe education should be; I believe in the mission of AGS and love that it is rooted in gender research; my dear friend Jen is a founding teacher, and I know this school was conceived and built from love. Finally, I’m so excited and honored to have the opportunity to teach the subject matter that I love so dearly.
Cara Reese began her career as a child development researcher, researching and publishing at universities such as the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Miami. Mrs. Reese’s interest in the intersection of children’s cognitive development on learning led her to the classroom, where she cultivated a love for developing project-based humanities curricula across the grade levels. Recently, Mrs. Reese has leaned into her love of history, writing, and art by developing a line of African American historical picture books. With more than 15 years of teaching experience, Mrs. Reese’s interdisciplinary approach to education and curriculum keeps her endlessly curious and inspired. She is also a certified yoga instructor!
