CSG Welcomes New Faculty and Staff
Kelly Privette

We're proud to welcome our newest faculty and staff members to the CSG community. Each one brings expertise, experience, and passion to their role, and we're so excited to have them with us.

Our new faculty and staff members join us with an exceptional depth and breadth of knowledge, from critical care nursing to computer science and beyond. Some of the roles they fill have existed for decades, while others are brand new (like Lower School Mandarin and Digital Media). Together, they are helping to enhance and expand the CSG experience both in the classroom and in the community.
