How long have you worked at Concord Academy?

I have worked in the English Department at CA for 3 years. 

What other areas of involvement at CA do you have?

I am the lead house faculty in Wheeler, a student advisor, and an admissions interviewer.

What is the best part about working and teaching at CA?

The kiddos! Teaching young people is the best. CA students really do love to learn. It’s the stuff we teachers dream of. 

What is your favorite CA tradition?

Chapel talks are one of my favorite school traditions. I love getting to listen to students’ stories. For the boarding program, I’d have to say Lunar New Year. The performance this year was amazing and we had some really yummy food.

What do you enjoy about living on campus? 

It’s nice to live amongst adults that seem to really care about me. I also enjoy hanging out in the common room. It’s fun to get to know students that way.

What is a fun fact about you?

I once hugged Michelle Obama! True story!
