What is your role at CSS? I teach science and mathematics in the Upper School.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
In my 20s, I happily lived out of my truck or a tent for months at a time while I traveled the Western US, South America, and the South Pacific in search of adventure such as rock climbing, mountaineering, river running, and scuba diving.

What is a favorite memory at CSS?
Meeting my wife here.

What is one thing you’ve learned from students?
I learn something new and interesting from students every single day in the classroom. Most of my students are smarter and more clever than I am. I’ve just been thinking about science and math longer than they have, so I get to teach these subjects to them.

If you were a superhero, what powers would you have?
Flight.

What did you want to be growing up?
First, a pilot, and then a mountain guide.

What draws you to working with students?
The energy, creativity, inventiveness, and humor of high school students.

What is your role at CSS? I teach Middle School English and Geography.

If you were a superhero, what powers would you have?
Definitely time travel - or is that not a superhero power? If that isn’t allowed on account of it being more of a mad scientist capability than a superhero power, I’d take the ability to fly. That would be useful right now.

What draws you to teaching? I love teaching because I love learning. And I’m always learning the most with and from my students.

What is your favorite spot in the world and why? Put me on a front porch rocking chair with my dog sitting nearby. Bonus points are awarded if a summer thunderstorm is blowing in.

Middle School Mathematics Teacher


B.A., Biology, Mount Holyoke College

What is your role at CSS? I am a Middle School math teacher, a sponsor of the Math Olympiad team, and an assistant coach for Middle School Volleyball.

What is a favorite memory at CSS?
It is hard to choose one favorite memory! Some of my favorite memories are from seminars and chaperoning Middle School events. My first Game Night, I was racing around with the kids on Boddington Field in the dark and playing capture the flag with glow sticks, and then for the Middle School Overnight, I was playing games at night in the gym and sleeping in the Trianon. I saw then how creating experiences for the students, from simple to elaborate, is what CSS is all about.

What draws you to working with children?
Being a teacher means that I get the chance to share in the life of each student - just for this short time of a year or two. I get to see them growing into themselves, discovering and uncovering talents and passions, overcoming challenges. It’s a magical experience and an honor.

What is one thing you enjoy about CSS?
One of the things that makes CSS such a special place is the faculty. I feel honored to work with such thoughtful, dedicated, innovative, passionate, hardworking, good natured educators. My colleagues inspire me and make me smile every day.

What is your favorite spot in the world?
My favorite spot is with my boys! This photo was taken at my son Jonathan’s wedding last fall.
