Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
Great students, great colleagues. I love being a part of St. Anne's-Belfield.

It's a great school in a great environment. I love the relationships that I am able to form with my colleagues and students alike. It is a nurturing environment that seeks to include all students.

My favorite part is awkward 9th graders grow and evolve into fine young adults over a 4 year period.

I love coming to school each day. I love coaching in the fall and the spring. I love watching winter sports and seeing winter musicals. I love the classroom. I like doing something different during intensives and taking students on a 200 mile bike trip.

B.S. in Biology, Bates College

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
The faculty and staff take great care to know each student well, and each student is encouraged to pursue their passions. Independent Studies, Capstones, and Intensives all provide students with opportunities to dive deeply into a topic.

At St. Anne's, students are encouraged to pursue their passions, and I love helping them on that journey.

I love and admire our students' commitment to excellence.

I love when our students avail themselves of the opportunity to pursue an Independent Study or Capstone project. From fast fashion to traditional Chinese medicine, I have learned beside my students as they deepen their understanding of complicated topics.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I love the School’s Outdoor Chapel as a time to carry out the Chapel tradition under the sky with acoustic music, student sermons, and a barbecue. When I think of St. Anne's the word “soul" comes to mind.

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I credit my journey into education to my time working as a coach and summer camp counselor.

The school’s goal of every child being known well resonates deeply with my approach to my work.

I love working with students in multiple arenas of school life. Classroom, grade level, arts, athletics, clubs... I enjoy getting to know our students through different lenses; seeing them in one might inform my work in another.
