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!

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
The people — during my visit as a candidate in the spring of 2021 I was so impressed by the expertise of the faculty and the warmth of the student body. Being part of such a vibrant community is wonderful!

Being able to spend time each day with students is what I enjoy most about my job. Helping parents to consider the possibilities for their child or children is what is most compelling about creating the next St. Anne's-Belfield community each and every year. Every Saint, every day!

Fun fact: My aunt, paternal grandmother, and great aunt are St. Anne’s graduates, and the same great aunt taught here as well.

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.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I love teaching in a school that balances high expectations with a supportive environment to encourage students to strive to reach their full potential. St. Anne’s-Belfield has that special combination, and I am thrilled to be a part of this community.

I love being a part of what I hope will be a lifelong language learning experience. Learning Spanish has enhanced my life in countless ways, and it is a privilege to be able to pass that gift along to my students.

Kim Cox

Kim Cox
Grades K – 4 and 7 & 8 Visual Arts Teacher

M.A.E., Boston University
VAEA Northern Region Art Teacher of the Year

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I came to St. Anne's from the Public School because I could really get to know kids--I taught in more than 3 schools and had over 1,000 students! At St. Anne's I have taught fewer students and really gotten to know them well and have even taught some of my former students' children--what an honor!

I get to do art and I get to share in the joy of creation with students! I love that I get to make art, see young people every day, work with passionate professional colleagues, and come to a beautiful place. I am able to get the supplies for Visual Arts that are needed to help make students' experiences in art meaningful and well-rounded.

Middle School Academic Support and Learning Specialist

M.A., Columbia University Teachers College
NYS Teaching License

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.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I'm excited to be a part of a community that values both building connection and growth. I feel lucky to have found a place where students, faculty, staff, and families are all invested in the school's mission and believe in the core values.

I love teaching and working in schools because I'm most excited to be challenged, solve problems, and figure out who I am in those spaces. Whether I'm helping a player find a passion for a new sport, guiding a student through a difficult text so they can better understand themselves or others, or finding purpose through my relationships with colleagues, teaching is where I both find and create meaning.
