Meet Toni Gardiner

My name is Toni Gardiner and I am so excited to be the new youth group leader! My family has been coming to New Hope for about four years now and we love the tight-knit community we have found here. My daughter Veronica is in fourth grade and enjoys being part of the “Big God Family” at New Hope, from lighting the candles and reading scripture on Sundays, to participating in vacation bible school during the summer. I currently teach 5th and 7th grade Humanities at Lucy School in Middletown, MD and have been a teacher for about nine years.

I started out as a preschool teacher, but have also taught high school English- so I have a wide range of experience in working with children from 6 weeks old all the way to sophomores!
I am also the Nursery Supervisor at New Hope, so you may have seen me around in the nursery teaching Sunday School. I am looking forward to getting to know all the families and youth, and plan on having an amazing year filled with fellowship, study, and service.
