Administration

Gabby Johnson
(Assistant Director)

I have been blessed to be a part of the Administration here at StoneBridge since the school began in 2012. I enjoy being able to work alongside a professional and loving staff that seek to serve the Lord using their gifts of teaching and nurturing young children. Each year, it is always so exciting to meet our new students, welcome back our returning students, and to see how much our students grow emotionally, spiritually, socially, and intellectually throughout the year. In my free time, my husband and I keep busy with our friends, family, church, small group, discovering new restaurants, weekend trips, and taking care of our “fur baby”, our dog Tonka.

I feel so blessed to be at StoneBridge as the Office Manager and to be a part of this Christ-centered school. The students, parents, and staff are such a joy to work with! I am thankful for the teamwork that the Lord has established here between school and home. Every morning, it is great to see the bright smiles, hear the friendly hellos, and feel the enthusiasm and energy that our students bring to school. It is wonderful to see God’s Word in action and how our students are growing in Him. I love Jesus and it is the desire of my heart to faithfully serve Him each day. In my free time, I enjoy reading, fellowship time with family and friends, and shopping. It is a privilege to be in the Lord’s service here at StoneBridge and to have the opportunity of working with our school family!

Staff

Zorana La Blanc Calloway
(“School Center”)

I feel so proud and honored to have been given the opportunity to meet and work with all children, parents, and staff members here at StoneBridge. This year, I will be assisting in all classes and with administration. I believe that every child is unique and are a blessing from God and have been sent here for a purpose. Every year, the children at StoneBridge continue to grow in the love of God and develop their special gifts. I have had the wonderful opportunity of witnessing the growth of children here at StoneBridge since February of 2014. God has led me here to develop my relationship with Him through the experiences and faith of others that I have come in contact with here at StoneBridge. He has also led me here to share my knowledge and past 21 years of teaching experience working with and developing the growth of children with the basic social and fundamental skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.

I’m so excited for another great year at StoneBridge as Red Room’s TK Teacher. Ever since I was young, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher.

I am extremely blessed to be a part of my home church where I actively serve and participate in the Young Adult’s Ministry. In my spare time, you can either find me at Disneyland or cheering on the Anaheim Ducks. I look forward to meeting and working along with each family to make this year the best that it can be.
