The best thing at Compass is the student/faculty relationship. I got into education with the idea that learning is best fostered in a collegial environment. Like a flat management structure, I get to work with students as partners in the process and watch them take the lead. Every day I wake up looking forward to new and fascinating projects proposed by my students.
As a generalist, I’ve been graced with the opportunities to teach poetry, philosophy, history, economics, digital citizenship, financial literacy, chess, geography, art, religion, psychology, and coach ultimate frisbee!
I started at Compass as an intern from the Marlboro Graduate School in February of 2014 and was hired on full-time half way through my internship. Before going into teaching I spent much of the previous decade in and out of the Middle East with the US Air Force.
