Faculty and Staff
"Gillen Brewer is a community where everyone learns and grows together. It is the idea of making a difference each day for future generations that kept me passionate about what I do. It is this passion that I see in the staff at Gillen Brewer. The love and care each staff member provides on a daily basis for their students is extraordinary and I was so honored to be a part of this learning community."
