Leslie Shaffer joined the Garrison Forest Admission team in July 2019. Prior to joining the GFS community, she worked as a teacher at Greenwich Country Day School in Connecticut, Convent of the Sacred Heart in New York, and most recently The New Century School in Fell's Point. Having worked as an educator in both co-ed and all girls' schools, Ms. Shaffer is acutely aware of the strength and confidence girls build in an single-sex environment, and was drawn to Garrison Forest for this reason. She holds a M.S. in Early Childhood Education from Bank Street College and a B.A. in Government from Hamilton College. She looks forward to continuing her work with students and families in her role as Assistant Director of Admission.
