Why did you choose to teach at George School?
For the well-rounded nature of the program. I appreciated that we were not a traditional college-prep school and that we helped students discover and pursue their unique passions. These are the same reasons I wanted my own children to come to George School.
Describe your teaching style.
I try to be supportive, positive, caring, and clear in my expectations. I have been working on ways to help students do more discovery, while I do less traditional teaching.
What would you tell prospective families about George School?
I would let them know how much the faculty cares about students and supports them in their growth.
