Associate Head of School, Nancy Hofer, came to GMS in 1991 as a Primary teacher where she taught for five years. Prior to coming to GMS she founded and operated the Brevard Montessori School for three years which is still in operation today. In 1996, she became the full-time Associate Head of School. In that role, she has overseen faculty professional development and Montessori curriculum adherence and integration in classrooms. During her time here she has fostered the expansion of the Middle School program, and the development of the Land program.
Nancy has diverse responsibilities at all levels throughout our community, including oversight of our CASA and auxiliary programs.
She also has six years of experience as a Board member with the American Montessori Society, and has also recently served a term on the Board of the Arthur Morgan School in western North Carolina.
Her three children attended Montessori schools and her youngest son, Ari, graduated from GMS in 2000.
Nancy is well suited to guide the faculty of GMS and assist the Board through the process of hiring a new Head of School for the 2017-18 school year. Nancy has a proven commitment to the Greensboro Montessori School community and is dedicated to the school's future.
