The Biggest Advantage to Working at an Independent School:

The opportunity to work in a mission-driven environment with students and parents who have chosen to be part of that specific environment.

Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

I love working in an environment where the culture in inclusive and welcoming.

A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

One morning, I walked into the Gallery to find over 200 students and faculty dressed in black and white.  I was informed that it was National Penguin Day and because I collected penguins they had decided to celebrate the day with me.  I was presented with a book about penguins which I read to all the students.  All of this was planned unbeknownst to me whatsoever.  I was amazed that students, ranging in age from 3 to 11, had managed to keep this a secret for well over two weeks.  How thoughtful!

My Favorite Book:

I read a book a week, sometimes more, so picking a book as my favorite is extremely difficult.  If I had to choose, I would choose " The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein because it illustrates that we all have something to give that will be valued by others.
