Gustavo Garces

Gustavo joins our Upper School Humanities team with over a decade of teaching experience. He holds a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Development from Montana State, and a Bachelor of Arts in both Literature, Language, and Criticism and Studio Art Concentration: Printmaking from Hunter College. Gustavo spent many years as a teacher on the Blackfoot Reservation, where he developed rigorous curriculum in the areas of language, literature, and composition, and he was personally influenced by the teachings of the Blackfeet people.

In his application materials, Gustavo tells us, “As a Humanities teacher, place and time are central to all stories, and when we teach our past and actively pass down our traditions, we not only educate the mind, but the heart and the spirit in each of us. This experiential knowledge was the gift given to me by the Blackfeet people.”
