Wendy Coulombe, Secondary Program Coordinator & math faculty
#1 Classroom rule: No one can say something is ‘easy.’ What if the student beside you is struggling with that problem? What if next time it is you who is struggling?
Favorite student quote: “I'm not even doing math—it’s just thinking!”
Music to my ears: Students passionately debating mathematics.”
Alaine Davis, science faculty
Favorite way to use prep time: setting up a crime scene!
Favorite comment overheard in my classroom: “Don't bother asking Alaine that question. She'll just ask you a bunch of questions back until you figure it out for yourself.”
Thing I'm mostly likely to bring to the table: anything purple.”—Alaine Davis, science faculty
Kelly Koffman, humanities & math faculty
Favorite novel: ‘East of Eden,’ by John Steinbeck
Favorite thing my students regularly do: argue about who gets to read the newest book in the classroom library next.
Favorite quote about writing: ‘The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.’—Terry Pratchett”
