Lindsay McGrath is one of the new Associates this year. She is working with Naomi Selwyn and Liana Stampur in the IVs.
When asked about her opinions of C&C, she said, “I love it so far!” She enjoys the home visits with the IVs, the Roof Yard, and the IVs/XIIs program. When asked, Lindsay said her ideal teaching situation is being in a small group with four-year-old kids. She said this environment allows her to build a meaningful relationship with each of the children's families and the children.
Lindsay started her career in 2012 teaching English in Spain. She has also taught pre-k and afterschool. She has taught in several schools including P.S 89, Bank Street School for Children, and a school called Little Bridge. When asked what drew her to City and Country, she said “The philosophy of the school is what would keep me here for a long time.” She also said she admires the amount of play and imagination that goes into everyday activities like picking up supplies or gathering for a meeting. Lindsay’s overall opinion of City and Country is that it is a unique school. She said, “I would say C&C has a really strong focus on its curriculum.” This means that C&C has a very particular way of teaching and Lindsay, like many people this year, is eager to learn the ways of this school and become a part of C&C History.
