"I like that I have the autonomy at Marvelwood to teach my material differently each year, depending on the types of learners I have."
60-Second Interviews with the Faculty & Staff
Great expectations make for greater achievements. While Marvelwood provides a beautifully accepting and supportive environment, we also expect our students to rise to the challenges that will help them reach their potential. Our teachers are able to deeply understand their students’ strengths and weaknesses. And because our teachers know what makes each child tick, they are able to raise the bar just enough to inspire growth. The result? Confident, driven learners who want to achieve more.
"Every class is an adventure. It never gets old."
"I went into education because I wanted to teach 'future generations' to both value excellent writing and aspire to greatness and efficacy in the self-expression of their ideas."
"I know I'm reaching a student when they open their mind to try something new. When they ask questions. When they volunteer to read poetry at the end of the day."
"When you work here, you are not just helping sculpt a mind, but a heart."
"My kids get to learn and grow with our students and I love that my students are so nurturing and kind to them!"
"I would tell my first-year teaching self: to be patient and don’t expect to get everything right on the first try."

"I am constantly surprised by the resiliance of Marvelwood students."
"A student wrote an ode to his hairbrush. He had never written a poem before and it was amazing!"
