In September of 1998, I began teaching at Saint Sebastian School, where I am in my nineteenth year. In addition to teaching, I oversee the Library and Technology aspects of the school, creating a network to connect three buildings and multiple classrooms to the web and each other. During my years at Saint Sebastianís, I have established e-mail for faculty and staff, organized a library catalog with online patron access, assisted faculty to devise methods of utilizing technology in the classroom, and provided general support to faculty and students. I also managed to finish the M.A. in Classics at Tufts University over several summers.
Our objective was always to provide a suitable
atmosphere for learning, but our collection was meager and
we were isolated, with no access to interlibrary loan or
other resources available to schools with a certified
librarian. When asked for my thoughts on the matter, I
informed the school of my desire to pursue a Masterís in
Library and Information Sciences at the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an endeavor they
heartily supported, and which I completed in 2005.
As of Fall 2016, I remain at St. Sebastian's,
handling library, instructional technology, intranet, and
academic database administrivia, as well as teaching one
or two courses a year; sometimes Scripture, Ancient
History, Latin, or Computer Science. I have also
taken on responsibilities with the New England Association of
Schools and Colleges on Visiting Committees;
participated in colloquia on Thucydides and Plutarch;
engaged in an
international research project with the
International Boys Schools Coalition; and served on the
executive committee of the Classical Association of
New England, taking on the role of president in the
2013-14 year. From 2014 to 2016 I served as a
Trustee for Innovation
Academy Charter School in Tyngsborough, Mass.
