I came to McLean School after earning a BA at Montana State University and an MA at the University of Connecticut. I taught grad school at the University of Connecticut and I also taught at a boarding school. As soon as I started at McLean, I knew that I was where I wanted to be. My students’ unique and energetic way of approaching their work, and especially the way they approach reading in my Literature classes, I learn new things right along with them. In the 15 years I’ve worked here as an English and Literature teacher, Academic Coach, and now the Upper School Learning Specialist, I’ve enjoyed the challenge of helping students discover how they learn best and making sure they put this knowledge into practice.
