Geoffrey Klok is a long-time resident of Washington and received his B.S. from the University of Puget Sound in 2002 with a major in Computer Science, minor in Math, and emphasis in Asian Studies. For nearly 20 years, he has taught music performance and theory on guitar and ukulele in classical, jazz, and contemporary styles throughout the South Sound area and became part of the GHA family initially as a Music Specialist. Geoffrey believes that introducing all our youngest students to creativity through engineering and technology prepares them to be future STEM leaders and empowers them with invaluable life skills.
GHA Tradition: Every year at our Open House I get to meet future students and share my excitement about what we get to do and learn. I also get to see our fifth grade ambassadors giving tours around campus and feel proud about how mature they’ve become.
Neighborhood Spot: Gig Harbor Family Park. Right across the street from GHA and just a lovely spot to explore. In Tacoma, enjoying something delicious from Peaks and Pints.
Outdoor Activity: Weekly walks in Point Defiance Park looking for interesting fungi.
Place to Read: In the quiet early morning, curled up on the couch in the lounge watching the sunrise.
Childhood Memory: As a teenager, learning to play the guitar. That time and those lessons gave me the confidence and direction I needed and started another side of my life as a music teacher and performer.
