At Behailu Academy our staff members and teaching artists bring an incredible array of experiences, skills, and creative practices into our program. From culinary arts to musical performance to visual art to academics and organization – and beyond, our faculty help offer our students tastes of many different ways of expressing themselves. We also have a dedicated group of professionals who ensure our kids are where they need to be, help them with homework, and make sure they have all the opportunities we can possibly give them.
Greer Friedrich is the academic coordinator for Behailu Academy. She is responsible for helping our students stay on track academically. Greer grew up in Charlotte and went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the College of Wooster in 2012. Throughout her time there she became passionate about fostering community and became involved with student services. She further explored the nature of community through the artistic media of ceramics and bread for her senior thesis project. These interests then lead her to spend time working in higher education doing academic advising and student support before returning to Charlotte. Currently Greer is excited to be working at Behailu as the Instructional Facilitator, and devoting her time to the students’ academic success.
Hannah Gore is the Administrative Assistant. She is responsible for handling all of the administrative tasks that help keep Behailu Academy running. She is also the first point of contact for those who reach out to Behailu Academy. Additionally, Hannah helps keep our records and paperwork current.
