What do you enjoy most about teaching advanced-level math?

I really enjoy teaching students who push me to continually think about the content I'm covering in new ways. I enjoy seeing students working through incredibly challenging questions then coming out on the other side not only with a solution, but also with an enormous amount of pride.

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). There I have the students spend a period walking around and looking at the photos or paintings and then ask each of them to build a story around a work of art of their choosing. I like to cross boundaries between disciplines and observe things that would not necessarily be incorporated into an English classroom.

What makes Loomis Chaffee special to you?

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.
