Celebrating 29 Years at CSG!

This year, beloved Form IV Teacher Charlotte Stiverson will retire after 29 years at Columbus School for Girls. Charlotte, a member of the CSG Class of 1976, started her career as an art teacher in 1980. In 1989, she came home to Columbus and CSG to teach Form II before becoming a Form IV teacher the following year. Read more here.

Please join us as we celebrate Charlotte's retirement, Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 4-6pm in the Peace Garden, located just beyond the Lower School playground. In the event of rain, the celebration will be moved to the Alumnae Living Room in the Mansion. Please RSVP below.

Charlotte's students reflect on their fond memories of her below.

"Ms. Sti, you are always so kind to us. (ya know what, you're the best!)" - Carys Webb '26

"I will always remember how nice, caring, and how you love nature!" - Lola Lewin '26

"I like how Ms. Sti takes us to Cat Welfare and how we get to see the cats. She got us a class cat, and she is very nice. She is the best teacher ever!!" - Adriana Massimiani '26

"Ms. Stiverson is everything you would love in a teacher and more. She is kind and cares about her students. Being in her class boosted my self confidence level and I am grateful she taught at CSG. So far, she is one of my favorite teachers i've ever had." - Colleen Hernon '26

We are honored to offer the opportunity to pay special tribute to Charlotte Stiverson, whose lasting impact is demonstrated across generations of CSG students and graduates.

If you wish to show appreciation for the influence Charlotte has had on you or your daughter(s), you may honor her at her retirement with a gift to help maintain an outdoor space that is very special to her, the Peace Garden.
