Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: "I have chosen to return to teaching at Prospect Hill Academy because I had grown to miss working with the wonderful and diverse community of teachers, students and families that make PHA the amazing school it is. After leaving the teaching career for the past few years, I longed to be a part of something again that had a lasting impact on our society as a whole. I knew that when I returned to teaching, Prospect Hill Academy was the school I wanted to be in since it's mission aligns with my beliefs and values as an educator. I feel very fortunate to once again be a part of the PHA team."
