What is one of your favorite pedagogical moments at Loomis Chaffee?

I like to take my classes out of the classroom and have them do something different, so I started taking them to exhibits in the RAC (Richmond Art Center).

I like to cross boundaries between disciplines and observe things that would not necessarily be incorporated into an English classroom.

There's really something for everyone. Some of my students went on to music conservatories or art schools; others competed in college athletics. Loomis Chaffee embraces all of those students and helps them each find their own paths.

Physics and Water Polo

One of the interesting things about the boarding school environment is that most of the teachers also coach, and they bring their expertise from the classroom with them. Today we hear from swimming and water polo coach Ed Pond about how physics informs his coaching.
