Our Faculty and Staff
During the spring semester, faculty and staff rose to the challenge of Covid-19 and adapted to a distance-learning model with resourcefulness and creativity. As Dean of Faculty Lucy Goldstein ’97 wrote, “There’s no other group of people I’d rather walk alongside through this pandemic.”
Teachers approached learning new technology with a passion. Our dedicated dining hall staff stayed on through uncertain times to feed students and faculty families who remained on campus, and they created new ways of working and serving meals to keep families safe. Faculty stepped into new roles seamlessly to mitigate the changes facing students for the 2020-21 school year. Members of the residential life team, along with faculty volunteers, packed students’ belongings and moved them out of their dorms when they could not return to campus. Other teachers hosted international students who could not return home due to travel restrictions, and some sacrificed their spring breaks to chaperone and care for stranded students. Coaches helped lift the spirits of the track and field team by arranging “virtual meets” — showing just how far creativity could take us in our distance-learning journey.
