b'Cheryl Love, Eighth Grade Math Teacher, came to GDS twenty-nine years ago as a part-time mathematics teacher in the Upper School. Cheryl noted that her decision process included a pros and cons list and that ultimately she made the correct decision in joining the faculty at Greensboro Day School. Her students and colleagues wholeheartedly agree.Cheryl taught mathematics across two divisions. Her teaching provided a strong foundation for GDS student mathematicians for parts of 4 decades. As a believer in the mission and philosophy of the school, she brought her sons, William 06 and Steven 10, both eventual lifers, to her school. Her sons were integral members of the learning community that Cheryl helped to shape. My time at GDS allowed my sons to learn from excellent teachers in a caring environment, build life-long friendships with teachers, alumni and their families, and enter university life ready for the challenges offered in that arena.Cheryls contributions to the GDS learning community were underscored by her gratitude for the support and encouragement to make them.
