My grandmother, Lois Cheves, impacted the lives of so many children in the years that she taught first grade at NGA, and I hope to be half the teacher she was. I’m hoping that she would be happy that I am back. I am so excited to get kids interested in math and science and show them the impact that these subjects have on our lives. NGA has always been a large part of my family’s life and I am proud to continue that tradition. Nathanael Greene Academy welcomes Miss Rebecca Cheves!
