I Love GA because…
"GA is all about growth. From the rigorous curriculum, to the goals of the athletic program, to the vision of the school as a whole, there is always a growth mindset driving everyone to move forward. This creates a palpable 'hum' in the hallways as students and faculty alike are engaged in this worthy pursuit."
When you visit my classroom/office/work space, you will see…
"Books everywhere! My classroom is filled with the written word, and these packed bookcases and the lessons we teach coax our students to find books that interest them, ask them to recognize how authors communicate effectively, and urge them to develop their own voices."
My hobbies and interests include…
"Reading, running, playing piano, and spending time with my family."
Engaging with students is important because…
"The connections between students and faculty at GA are so important in the life of the school. I love how comfortable students are approaching faculty for such things as extra help, going over a test, talking about books, or even commiserating about the Phillies. Because we put such a focus on our lessons being engaging, these relationships become a natural part of the school day and enrich the academic life of the students and strengthen the community as a whole."
The book that has meant the most to me:
"I read Fahrenheit 451 every year with my students, and though the novel grows older each year, it seems to be increasingly relevant. I love the conversations we have and the thinking it asks us all to do about the role of technology in our lives."
Carey Stadium (310 Morris Road, Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, 19034) is home to GA track and field. It was opened in 2010 as a multi-sport facility that includes a 200 x 380’ artificial turf field, a regulation track surface with six lanes, high jump area, long jump pit and easy on-and-off sideline access. Lines are drawn on the field for football, soccer and lacrosse. The bleacher seating can accommodate 850 spectators and are handicap accessible. Carey Stadium also houses a concession stand equipped with electrical, an ice machine and a reach-in cooler; restroom facilities, as well as two team gathering rooms, private referee room and a trainer’s room equipped with sink, ice machine and treatment bed. The scoreboard in the corner of the Stadium is a multi-sport unit that displays the game clock, home and away scores, time outs left, quarter and football-related information. There is a sound system that is operated from the top of the Stadium where there is a 10-seat granite-topped work area with several electrical outlets and jacks for the microphone and music; all protected by an awning. The Stadium speakers are located on top of the scoreboard. There are several handicap parking spaces adjacent to the entrance to the Stadium in addition to more than 200 spaces spread between two parking lots for the outdoor athletics complex. More parking is available on the GA campus by crossing the Wissahickon Creek by car and returning by foot on the brick pathway. Germantown Academy has hosted many lacrosse and soccer tournaments and was the home to the first coed Inter-Academic Athletic League Track and Field Championships in 2012.
