Memory

My favorite memories are the school plays, the Y Group trip to Nantucket, and Joe’s classroom. I’m not sure what the plays are like now, but when I was at Jemicy, they were a focal point of the whole school for months! When we went to Nantucket, Roger gave us lots of freedom, and that was a lot of fun. Joe’s classroom made a big impact on me. It wasn’t like any other classroom. He had computers from RadioShack hanging from the ceiling on a pulley system. We made a submarine and buried it in the backyard of the school. I think they removed it because it was deemed dangerous.

Memory

My favorite memory from my time at Jemicy is spending time at the barn and riding. I kept my pony Loveit on the farm, so I got to see him every day.

Change

Jemicy created a strong academic foundation for me and built up my confidence in the classroom.

Now

After teaching Skills at Jemicy’s Lower/Middle School campus for ten years, I transitioned in the summer of 2013 to the Development Office, where I serve as the associate director of development.

Memory

Horseback riding in the early days.

Change

Jemicy gave me the foundation so that I could do well in school, eventually graduating with honors from Washington University and in the top third of my law school class at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Prior to going to Jemicy, I remember looking around my second grade classroom as my classmates were all engrossed in their work and thinking, "What are these people doing?"

Memory

My favorite memories definitely have to do with Joe and airplanes. I think my top memory would either be going for my first small airplane ride with Joe, going to the airport to see the airplanes take off, or building model airplanes. I also remember working on different Science Fair projects with Joe. Working on the plays was always a lot of fun, and I always enjoyed the social studies theme that happened at the beginning of each year. My favorite was Westward Move, where we learned about America’s history and the expansion west.
