Administration & Staff

Who We Are

All staff hired at JPGMA go through a rigorous vetting process.  We strive to hire the best teachers in each area to work with the children at the Academy. Teaching is a vocation.  The ability to work with multi age groups is both a great gift and responsibility. Each staff member is required to have a background check and is approved by the Head of School, Advisory Board, and Board of Directors.


Benedict comes originally from the great state of Michigan where he grew up in a small farming town. Much of his youth was spent outdoors playing a variety of sports and working with his family’s landscaping business.  He loves discussing philosophy and is proud to have graduated from Christendom having earned a philosophy degree.  He has experience teaching at a charter school in Austin, Texas for a year and is now excited to join the JPGMA community.
