Science Department and Dorm Resident
Joined George School in 2004
“The focus on community at George School is very important to me. It’s a great place, and I’m really glad that my kids can experience it.”
Why do you like being a dorm resident?
Boarding is a big part of the George School culture, and I enjoy working with the sophomore girls in West Main. They have a fresh energy and enthusiasm.
Being in the dorm is a great way to get to know kids you don’t teach and to see a different side of the ones you do. There are highs and lows. We try to teach good communication and the spirit of community living.
Different girls mesh with different staff members. I have established deep personal relationships with some of the girls. Sometimes they confide in me. Sometimes they just ask for chemistry help. At times I feel like their mother, taking on a more nurturing role.
This is my seventh year in a dorm, and it works well for me. My two young children like going out into the dorm and interacting with the students. For us, the girls are our extended family.
