In addition to engaging with super talented students, I love working collaboratively with colleagues and sharing the freedom to design our courses creatively. To some educators, it may seem daunting to work independently from textbooks. However, I find it energizing to work with an amazing team of teachers who share the same high standards, bring unique ideas to the table, and are eager to learn from one another.– Upper School Teacher
