My primary roles at White Mountain: Assistant Head of School for Teaching and Learning

Why White Mountain? The opportunity to help build a transformational learning experience-- both academic and personal --  rooted in student-driven inquiry; an inspiring community that is humble and engaged; a wonderful place to for our family (and 2.5 year old) to live
What excites you the most about teaching at WMS?
The commitment to student-driven inquiry and designing learning experiences for students that focus on the essential skills and habits. I am excited to look at how the beautiful and inspiring place where we live might become a rich teaching tool.
When not in the classroom I can be found: Playing with Harvey, our deeply curious and energetic 2.5 year-old.

Favorite place on campus?
Running through the trails in the morning with amazing views of the sunrise and sneak peaks of the inspiring mountains or walking around the farm.
