Before joining ACS, Gwen was the academic dean for the Equinox program at Northwestern’s Center for Talent Development, where she worked with academically talented students and faculty from across the country. She is pursuing her Ed.D. in leadership and innovation from Arizona State University, with a research focus on socio-emotional student development and gifted education.

“Our teachers know the ultimate key to the success of our students lies in creating a bond of trust whereby our students will be equally excited by the content of the curriculum and the adults who provide it.”
