B.S., Middlebury College

I grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts and studied biochemistry in college. After graduating, I moved to Connecticut to work at Suffield Academy, a secondary boarding school where I taught chemistry, coached soccer and track, and led a boys’ dormitory. I did soccer and track in high school, and I am still an avid distance runner. Two years ago, I decided to make a change, and so I moved back to the North Shore of Massachusetts to be closer to family and to look for teaching positions at small private day schools. As my Christian faith has deepened in recent years, I also started to look into positions at Christian schools, and Bradford Christian Academy looked like a great fit. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach science at BCA!

BCA’s approach to faith and education within a small, Christ-centered community is unique. The school’s foundation of Christian faith is strong and promotes the personal spiritual growth of each student. The school’s philosophy of education emphasizes teaching students how to think for themselves. The adults in this community care deeply about their students, guiding and challenging them to strive for excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, and in their character and actions as members of the body of Christ. The community feels more like a large family than a small school, a family united by common purpose, love for each other, and love for God.
