Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: “I chose to work at PHA because I enjoy working in an urban setting with students who come from diverse backgrounds. My views align with PHA’s mission to inspire a lifelong love of learning beyond the walls of the classroom. I love that PHA embraces the whole child approach, knowing that every child learns differently and has different academic and social/emotional goals. I am looking forward to collaborating with PHA faculty to help students achieve these goals."
