Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
As someone that grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, I am very familiar with the high standards and welcoming community that St. Anne's-Belfield has to offer. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to join the St. Anne’s Belfield community in 2008, after teaching at Western Albemarle High School for five years.

I have the unique opportunity to be teaching, coaching, and mentoring students from each of the divisions at St. Anne's-Belfield. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing the growth (mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually) from all of the students from when they first started here in the Lower School to when they graduate from the Upper School.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I originally chose to work with St. Anne's both because of its prestige and reputation among the Charlottesville community, and also because my mother used to teach here as well. However, my decision to stay is now far more reflective of the wonderful and professional faculty that I get to work with, and how fulfilling it is to support our amazing students!

Lindsay Rubin
Kindergarten Teacher

M.T., University of Virginia
Innovation in Education Award, 2017

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
My favorite aspects of the School community include the sense of family and the freedom and support to continually grow and evolve as an educator. I've been a teacher in three states, and believe that children are born curious and eager to learn. So Kindergarten classrooms should value students' interests and wonders, their amazing capacities for thinking critically and learning collaboratively, their innate desire to move, touch, and explore the world around them, and their wondrous senses of creativity.

I love to read about education and try out new ideas in the classroom and find that a glimpse of the Blue Ridge Mountains on my drive home is the perfect way to end every school day.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
A graduate of an independent school myself, I am passionate about independent education and particularly how St Anne's is committed to civic engagement and exploring how private education can play a role in the greater good for all.

Grade 2 Teacher

M.T., University of Virginia
St. Anne's-Belfield Teacher Recognition Award, May 2008
Z95.1 Teacher of the Month, May 2016
Trained in Singapore Math at the MNP (MathsNoProblem), July 2018

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I have taught Kindergarten, first, and second grade in the area for more than three decades. In addition, I am a Math Specialist. I have been at St. Anne's for about two decades and feel that the mission of the School fosters relationships and connections among every member of the School. I feel blessed to teach and learn in a school where curiosity, the love of learning, and taking risks are encouraged and supported.

I believe my biggest calling as an educator is to have a positive impact on every student’s self-confidence and to find a way to reach students so that they believe in their abilities to learn and are empowered to solve problems they encounter. For me, the best part of any school year could happen at any moment because it is when a student is finally able to achieve something that they have worked hard to do or understand.
