The Biggest Advantage to Working at an Independent School:

Getting to know all the students.


Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

I was a student at Harrisburg Academy, as were my brother and cousin. My mother taught 5th grade here. I have been lucky to continue to have friendships with people I met here all those years ago.


A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

Scoring my first goal in a lacrosse game and scoring my first points in a basketball game, but not so much breaking my nose in a soccer game.


My Favorite Book:
The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy are the books that I have read the most. The storytelling, quest, and struggle between good and evil are timeless.

Harrisburg's Only Independent School,
