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.


Theresa Stebbins grew up in sunny Southern California. Living so close to the ocean, Theresa could often be found climbing around the rocks at low tide investigating and cherishing all the sea critters. Expectedly, she went on to study Biology at Franciscan University of Steubenville and graduated in 2022. Unexpectedly, she received an offer to go co-lead a mission to teach students at Mar Qardakh International School in Erbil, Iraq. Though this was something that seemed so far out of Theresa’s comfort zone, she knew this was an opportunity to grow and serve Christ.  There she found a love for children and how important it is to radiate Christ in the little ways..

On a whim she moved down to Virginia and loves the community she found herself in. Theresa is now the administrative secretary at JPGMA.
