Serving in the field of education as a teacher, administrator, and coach for more than three decades has been a continually inspiring as well as tremendously rewarding experience for me.  My varied experiences with the independent school world have allowed me to grow significantly in both personal and professional ways and have also helped strengthen my commitment to the welfare of children and to independent school education.
