Jimmy McGinley

Aftercare specialist (Grades K - 8) (

Jimmy McGinley is an avid musician, educator, and lover of life. During his teens he found a passion working with kids at summer camps and assisting in grade school classrooms. He studied Music Composition at Gonzaga university, developing his skills as a performer and composer. Shortly after graduating from Gonzaga, he traveled to Zambia to start an online school for those at the margins to receive higher education. Most recently, he worked at an aquaponics farm, learning sustainable farming techniques and how our farming practices affect our community. He understands the unique responsibility we all have to be stewards of our environment and of each other. This is why he values meaningful and intentional relationships and hopes to create a safe and conscious space for Gardner students to thrive as they end their day with after care.
