Dan Mirsky

BA in History, Wesleyan University (CT)
[MEd Univ of Washington]
Previous experience:
Over the last 18 years, I have taught History/Social Studies in grades 6-12 in two charter schools (KIPP in NYC and MATCH in Boston), 2 public schools (Chelsea HS and Brookline HS) and 3 independent schools (Eagle Rock in CO, Hyde in CT and Poly Prep in NYC)
Hobbies and interests:
Cooking, playing sports (soccer, lacrosse, basketball), watching sports, playing with my kids (4 yr old, newborn), hiking, travel
Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?:
I have always been drawn to innovative schools that serve urban student populations, and PHA presents a dynamic blend of new strategies with battle-tested approaches to teaching and learning, all within a smaller, more intimate school setting. I'm excited to be here!
