Staff Spotlight
Libby Kinstle
Lead Teacher, Preschool
Teacher at GPS since 2017

Libby first came to GPS with her then 3 year old for an Open House event. She fell in love with dedication of the staff and families and as her experience as a parent at GPS grew so did her dream to teach here! Libby lives in Ashburn with her husband, 3 children, 2 dogs and a turtle.

"I love coming to work everyday at GPS #Dream"
"We have loved getting back to the Pond, to see all the kids and teachers' eyes light up when they got the children out of the cars is so special.  Most days my child does not want to leave school when I pick him up!"

Important Information Regarding COVID19

Golden Pond School is working diligently to provide a loving and joyful learning environment for our families during this challenging time. Our impressive, brain-based programs and procedures have been adjusted for the safety of our students and staff while maintaining the core elements that make GPS unique.

Our community is strong and we will face these unprecedented challenges together. The support from our GPS Families is very appreciated and our cooperative approach will provide our students the academics, stability, love and friendships they need to thrive.

Changes this year include: reduced class sizes, limited exposure to other children and teachers outside core classroom, virtual Home Visits, smaller groups for meals, individual supplies, postponed field trips, outside or carline drop off and pick up, PPE for staff, increased sanitizing and a virtual learning plan if needed. Our teachers have gotten creative and made Book Boats for socially distanced reading, fun songs for feeling safe plus implementing air hugs and high fives for classroom greetings.
