Head of School
The Salisbury School

What do you consider your most significant professional accomplishment?
As I look back on more than 30 years as an educator, I am most proud of the role I played in the very thoughtful and intentional development of a middle school division that recognizes the unique needs of students in grades six, seven and eight that allows them to transition to young adulthood in an environment that supports their social, emotional, and academic growth.

Please share a quote about your commitment to mentoring and the impact it has had on your life. Tie a specific experience if possible.
As head of school, mentoring is infused in every interaction I have — in conversations I have with teachers, in the advice I share with students, and in the guidance I provide school families. Nothing has been more satisfying to me than the privilege of watching teachers I once mentored grow into caring, dedicated professionals who now successfully mentor their own students and peers.
