Avery Stern

English DepartmentDorm Resident, Coach
The only thing certain about Avery’s English class is the thrill of uncertainty.

Describe your teaching style.

Energetic, philosophical, and conversation based. It’s a wild ride. You never know where a class discussion will take you. Sometimes I even incorporate scientific material into our readings.

What other roles do you play at George School?

I’m a Day Student Sponsor, a dorm resident, and a track coach. It’s always great to get to know the kids in a different context than the classroom.

What gets you excited about coming back to campus each fall?

Becoming a better teacher than I was the year before… and the sticky buns!
