The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

The small class size.  In so many areas of our lives today, so many of us feel like nothing more than a number.  At Harrisburg Academy, there are personal interactions enhancing relationships between teachers and students. Getting to know HOW a student learns is just as important as what you teach.


My Favorite Book:
"Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal."  I believe, that with any religion, humor and tolerance are imperative. This book is not only a reminder of how to laugh but that even the most serious of topics can teach us to smile and be humble.

Harrisburg's Only Independent School,
