What is your favorite thing about working at Friends Academy? I love that teachers are given freedom to design curriculum that encourages students to ask hard questions and explore parts of the world – from what is ancient up to the current news cycle.

What do you love to do outside of school? Play music (pipe organ, singing, mandolin), cycling

Fun Fact: I co-authored a pre-K ethics curriculum using picture books, and I am on the board of the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization (PLATO) and the National Middle School Ethics Bowl.
