Faces of Carpool – The Reverend Sonia Sullivan Clifton

Welcome to “Faces of Carpool!” In our weekly Panther Post, we will be highlighting the amazing faculty and staff that you see each morning and afternoon in carline, but may not know exactly what their role is at EDS. If you do know them, this is also a great way to learn something new! Today’s “Face of Carpool” is The Reverend Sonia Sullivan Clifton, our Chaplain and Chair of Religious Life, and teacher of fourth, fifth, and eighth grade religion classes.


What does daily life look like for you at EDS?

Three days a week, I start each morning in preparation for our Chapel services. Doing everything from unlocking doors to greeting students as they arrive. Chapels are a great way for our community to come together and learn about the love and grace of God in the midst of us.
The other two days, I walk around campus sharing greetings with students and faculty members as they walk into the school so excited to spend another day at EDS. It sounds “corny”, but it really is true. People love being here!


Favorite thing about working at EDS?

Camaraderie of the faculty and the amazing students.


Favorite thing about carpool? 😉

Watching the joy and love shared between child and adult as they are reunited at the end of the day. It makes my heart smile!


Leave us with one interesting fact about you:

I am so excited to be at EDS and closer to my family in Savannah–family is everything to me!
