Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
I chose to work at St. Anne's-Belfield because of the collaborative nature of our faculty who focus, first and foremost, on ensuring the well-being of our students. Additionally, our students bring to the table a diverse group of interests and passions, which keeps us on our toes! I also love working with international students and appreciate the strong community built in our dorm program.

I love the investment that so many of our students put into the St. Anne's-Belfield community. They love and School and constantly look to serve its best interests and represent it in the best light possible. They're also just really fun to be around and always good for a laugh. :)

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?
St. Anne's-Belfield is a close-knit school. The small class sizes allow teachers to truly get to know the students well to allow individuality and creativity to shine.

Teaching lower elementary students is a great joy. Everything is new and exciting to them. It is wonderful to light a spark and watch it grow.

John Blake

John Blake

Director of Alumni Engagement

Why St. Anne's-Belfield?
Building a connection with the students through our shared traditions is amazing. I love the many traditions we have on campus from Lessons & Carols to Field Day.

John Blake joined the School in the 1997-98 school year, and since then has held a number of positions in the community including coaching basketball and lacrosse, directing buildings and grounds, Varsity Football head coach, Girls’ Varsity Lacrosse assistant coach, and director of alumni relations. Not surprisingly, his favorite time of year is late fall when the leaves are changing colors and “football weather” rolls in.

Fun fact: Coach Blake enjoys woodworking and candy making as hobbies.

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.

Carrie's favorite book is "Tiny Beautiful Things" by Cheryl Strayed, and she enjoys reading the "Dear Sugar" advice column because her responses to each person's questions and concerns are so eloquently written and filled with compassion, honesty, and refreshing air of humor.
