Description

The Good Shepherd Shelter provides a safe, nurturing environment in which mothers and their children can heal, reawaken their dignity and self-confidence, and learn the skills that will help them stop the cycle of domestic violence. The Shelter's own school provides the children with a protected educational environment in which they can thrive.

The GSV assists in the implementation of the daily school program under the direction of the teachers. Ages range from Pre-School to 5th grade classrooms.

The GSV assists the teacher in the classroom or, if the candidate is a teacher, s/he may have his/her own class.
