Mrs. Gault is the teacher who greets students every day with an energy that conveys, “Your presence is a gift to me today.”

She believes that giving students an outstanding education within the context of community is the greatest legacy teachers can offer future generations.


“Whether she is serving in the role of School Improvement Team Facilitator, Literacy Specialist, Reading Intervention Teacher, Language Arts Department Chair, or classroom teacher, one thing has remained constant: Mrs. Gault’s content knowledge expertise, pedagogical skill, and relationship-building ability are second to none.”

Sean Abel, Bel Air Middle School Principal

“Mrs. Gault exemplifies moral leadership. Who she is as a teacher leader cannot be separated from who she is as a person. At her core, she is a teacher. She believes in the responsibility of individual teachers and schools to provide students with the tools to learn, to lead, and to take ownership of their future.”

Patricia Ritz, teaching colleague

“Mrs. Gault has inspired me in so many ways. She teaches us in a fun way, and that is just about the best thing a teacher could do.”

Courtney Levy, student
