"In grad school, I started to think about the most grassroots way to effect change in the world—and not just to react to conflicts, but to prevent them from arising. I recognized that it is through education. That was when I realized that I really am a teacher at heart."
"The people here are amazing – there is such a strong sense of community that I felt even from the time of my interview. Everyone is so warm, welcoming and supportive. And the students are just wonderful – so enthusiastic."
"I believe that all children are musical, and I think that having music as a core part of a curriculum is very important. I love the emphasis and value that the Lower School places on arts-based learning and integrated learning between different content areas."
"I love being able to see the girls in many different contexts, and to teach much more than art in the art class. They are bringing in their own stories, and when we do a project they are always connecting that to their work."
"A Bryn Mawr education teaches our students to look at the world in a different way. It shows them they can ask questions that maybe wouldn’t be asked otherwise – it gives them the courage to do that."
"One of the privileges of teaching here is that I teach all of my classes around a Harkness table. Students and teachers sit down together, and ask and answer questions together. That is really important to me."
"Working with the toddlers, there is so much growth that happens in a very short span of time. Some of the children come to us before they are walking or talking, and then by mid-year they are hitting those milestones."
"The unexpected can be what’s really interesting. When you over-plan you’re not giving them the freedom to expand, and to learn things yourself about the text by letting the students go off in different directions."
