I have a BA from Middlebury College in Sociology/Anthropology and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a cognate in International Studies from the University of Denver. I am currently enrolled in a Master’s program in Classical Studies at St. John’s College, Santé Fe, New Mexico
I am one of the founders of PH International, which I started in 1985 when I was teaching at Harwood. PH International’s mission is to build a strong global community by fostering civic engagement, cross-cultural learning, and increased opportunities in the digital age. PH pursues this vision by conducting innovative programs for youth, professionals and communities around the world that uses in-person and online engagement, practical skills development and coalition building to support global collaboration, learning and advancement. As part of my work with PH International, I have done extensive travel and teaching abroad and taught English in the Republic of Georgia for an academic year. I continue to consult with PH and work to offer professional training opportunities for teachers and students in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
When I am not reading, meditating or engaging in schoolwork ( which is my first love, I admit) I love being in the out of doors. I enjoy hiking, biking and going on travel adventures with my family. My two children, Celia and Parker, both went to Harwood, and my husband Jared serves as the chairperson of the Fayston Select board. I appreciate the unconditional support of my family as I work in this amazing and challenging job!
