Loomis Chaffee welcomed 22 new faculty and administrators with a wealth of expertise and diverse experiences to the Island in August for the start of the 2019-20 school year.
Modern & Classical Languages
The Modern and Classical Languages Department at Loomis strives to provide an education that teaches you how to interact in an ever-changing global landscape, preparing you for global citizenship. In addition to teaching the fundamental competencies of each language offered, our department will encourage you to dive into the cultural, historical, and geo-political background of whatever language, or languages, you choose to pursue.
Whether teaching Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, or Latin, our faculty members bring more than just cultural understanding and fluency to the classroom. Our passionate teachers bring language to life, drawing from experiences abroad where they have immersed themselves in learning a second or even a third language.
Students and faculty gathered in Katharine Brush Library on Tuesday, April 30, for the annual Modern and Classical Language Honors Tea to recognize students who have excelled in their studies of language.
Senior Abby Huang has built a thriving online English-learning program connecting Loomis Chaffee students and schoolchildren in rural China, and she spoke about her experience at Senior Meditations convocation on April 9.
