Assistant Head of Middle School
For Ms. Butler, watching our middle schoolers progress from 5th to 8th graders is a gift, with each grade level bringing its unique experiences, growth, and excitement.
Walking into classrooms and seeing the passion and expertise teachers bring to lessons, students actively engaged, and the positive ways the students interact with one another is the absolute best. Ms. Butler is most proud of the team approach to supporting each student-with parents, teachers, advisors, counselors, coaches, Mr. Sullivan, and herself working together to provide guidance and encouragement while also fostering student independence and self-advocacy. Including students in conversations, allowing their voices to be heard, and allowing them safe spaces to take appropriate risks, ask questions, and hone their leadership skills, creates a greater sense of belonging for all students; and is one of the many reasons Ms. Butler loves being part of the middle school team.
