I really believe that working at Pennington helps me feel that I’m part of something larger than myself. Teaching at a place with state-of-the-art technology and just the general brightness at this School, enhances learning in the classroom and just helps people feel good about the community that they’re a part of.

The way that the classrooms are structured here, with the round tables, and the circular tables, and the technologies that are right there and are accessible to me as I move around, is invaluable--with students of this generation, the transitions and the changes in a teacher’s approach really help them. All students have different learning styles, so for me to be able to seamlessly move from one type of teaching to another is incredibly valuable.”
