Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
The St. Anne’s community is a lovely place to work as a teacher, raise your kids as a parent, and find support as a friend. Teachers are supported and encouraged to stretch by engaging in professional development, are challenged by the wealth of knowledge of their colleagues, and are energized by their students. As a teacher, this is an incredibly rewarding place to work.

I love being able to help students find their confidence in mathematics. At St. Anne’s, we believe all students are capable of being great mathematicians. When students are able to make this mind shift, they can accomplish incredible things in the math classroom and beyond!

I love the feel of community at School. I joined St. Anne's-Belfield because I loved the community and family feel.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
In the words of my daughter when she was in 8th grade: "At Saint-Anne's I feel like I would learn to learn and not just to get As!"

I have the freedom to use the techniques I feel are most effective for language learning. I can teach to speak and read in a different language and not worry about standardized tests which only teach you to spot a correct answer and cannot allow you to communicate and understand another culture.
Our students understand and value the high-quality teaching they receive. They understand that they are part of the School as a student-centered experience and are therefore involved in all activities.

The thing I like most about our School is working with the students. I love seeing their individual talents and strengths and I enjoy helping them grow in their learning. I also have just as many opportunities to learn from them as they do from me.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
Of course, St. Anne's has a rich history and is known for its rigorous curriculum. However, I was drawn to St. Anne's because it is apparent that everyone - students, faculty, and staff - is continually challenged by the course content and each other. This is an environment that creates space for change, progress, and ongoing learning and reflection. Anyone who enters the building can feel the vibrancy and excitement, which are fueled by meaningful academic tasks, caring people, and incredible leadership.

I love the excitement of the first day of school, and the chance to slow down and share as a community that weekly Chapel provides.

Pam Grosch

Pam Grosch
Grade 7 Science Teacher

M.S.Ed., State University of New York
Virginia 5-year Professional Teaching License, Endorsement Areas Biology, Earth and Space Science

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I believe that students learn best when they are given the opportunity to experiment, problem-solve, and collaborate. My favorite tradition is the ceremony of Convocation and my favorite time of year is spring when I can reflect on what my students have learned and share in their excitement of their astronomy projects. The most important thing I teach my students is the skills that they will need for future success: organization, independence, problem-solving, and a sense of personal responsibility.
