What brought you to The Common School?

I found The Common School while looking for a nursery school for my son Myles.

Tell us about a favorite teaching moment at The Common School:

I have so many favorite teaching moments here, but what stands out most is an amalgamation of many different Wednesdays in the Woods. I love setting off with a multi-age group of students, in all sorts of weather, through the beautiful woods and farmland of the Larch Hill Collaborative. Together, we have seen owls, bushwhacked through the thickets, swung on the bubble swings, helped Carole feed the animals at Bramble Hill Farm, observed snakes in their hibernacula, gotten stuck in the mud, and on and on. The lighting at that time of day, combined with the beautiful landscape and so many joyful faces, makes me feel very lucky to work in a school such as ours.

What do you like best about The Common School?

I love the joy of learning that is fostered here. I love how known all of the children are, and how connected they feel to each other and the broader school community.
