Why I Teach Here

Private Boys High School Student and Teacher

"There is nothing more important than allowing boys to self-actualize on their own terms. I can think of no greater privilege and responsibility than to participate in shaping a generation of young men; at my core, I want nothing more than to help these boys become the best version of themselves."

- Kate McSpadden, Visual Arts Teacher

"I belong to a select group of professionals who are energized to guide young people in building their knowledge and setting examples of how to manage life’s challenges. I choose to work with the student population at Avon Old Farms School: to promote good decisions and to discover that all problems can be resolved, and am proud to be working alongside Avon teachers who successfully do this everyday."

- Dr. Jack Sanford, Science Teacher
