Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: "I continue to work at PHA because I love the culturally and linguistically diverse community here. Also, I appreciate the approach PHA takes in teaching the whole child. They have truly built a unique community in which faculty, staff, students, and families are encouraged and supported to step out of their comfort zone to grow and learn together."
