"We LOVE Surrey, catch her playing Yee Haw with unsuspecting kids at a moment's notice. Just kidding. Surrey is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful human being who brings her whole self to education. It's clear that she is...great at connecting with students in a way that makes them feel comfortable and supported."

- Will; Senior at Moses Brown School 

"Surrey was a lifeline for me during the Gamm Summer Intensive. She brings a lot of knowledge to the table and is noticeably passionate about her work and easy to connect with, taking time to make sure everyone is on the same page and elevating everyone’s understanding."

-Nola; Junior at Moses Brown School
