Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: "I work at PHA because its diverse and tight-knit community inspires me to be the best educator possible. I love how well I get to know the students and the other faculty members. Working at PHA means you get to be so much more than a teacher: you get to mentor students, you have the freedom to bring new ideas to the table, and most importantly, you really get to learn from all the other people around you."
