For the Love of Teaching

Phillips Academy

They are teachers first, but so much more. These coaches, counselors, and confidantes have provided students with both support and constructive criticism—blended with a good dose of humor and humility.

This year’s three retiring faculty members embody the best of Phillips Academy, artfully combining knowledge and goodness and living the non sibi spirit each day.
