What if learning was seen as an opportunity to grow and showcase your strengths? What if failure and success were valued as necessary to progress? What if who I am, how I learn, how I practice, and my dreams of who I want to be were seen first? What if I were encouraged to master a skill not simply memorize content?
Tilton provides a lot of resources, great people, and a great environment to learn and thrive. Everyone here, both faculty and students, want you to be successful. There’s no reason for you to not succeed.
Tilton has allowed me to flourish in my creative talents and my academic abilities. I have grown significantly in both aspects with the encouragement of my Tilton family. Because of the positive feedback, I’m challenged to improve more.
The best thing about teaching at Tilton School are the opportunities I have to connect with my students outside of the classroom through coaching, shared meals in the dining hall, and downtime in the dorm. It allows me to experience so many facets of their personalities and lives and they are getting to know me as a person beyond being their math teacher. It really becomes a family-like atmosphere, which is so important at a boarding school.
