Let's get to know Mrs. Gaeth!
What brought you to Fork Union Military Academy?
I was looking for a positive environment to teach in, and was referred to FUMA, where I loved the campus the first time I visited.
What made you want to become a Teacher?
I became a teacher to help people. I've always wanted to do something that really contributed to society. I didn't know I wanted to teach until I was a teacher's assistant in high school, where I tutored different age groups.
What is your favorite thing about being a Teacher?
My favorite thing about being a teacher is being able to help students grow academically. I love when a student who has been struggling with a subject, gets help, and ends up loving what they've learned.
What makes Fork Union special to you?
FUMA is special to me because it gives me a sense of belonging. I feel like this is the place that I was meant to be!
What other responsibilities do you have a FUMA besides being a Teacher?
Other than being a teacher, I am also the assistant band director and one of the robotics coaches!
What is one thing the cadets would be surprised to learn about you?
I wear ACUs for comfort and sake of not having to pick out what to wear.
Welcome to the Academy, Mrs. Gaeth!
