Jessica MacLeod '02, Dean of Faculty

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

I really like connecting with my students and allowing them to take charge of their own learning. I love it when they are curious, creative, and interact with their peers. When my role is to stand by and watch them be the leaders of the classroom, I feel like this is the best moment in the class. 

What do you look forward to as an advisor?

I look forward to creating a trusting relationship with students. When I can joke, inspire, be a listener or be a guide for a student outside the walls of the classroom, I feel as if a student is starting to become the person they want to be. 

Why do you choose New Hampton School?

The community. I love that the faculty never settle down for something comfortable; they always want to learn and try new ideas in their classroom. I love that our faculty truly love being with our students and supporting them. The students are amazing in so many different ways, and I love that we can see so many students succeed in their interests. 

Jonathan Schwab, Director of Strategic Initiatives

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

I enjoy seeing the growth in my students as they learn to engage with the world around them. Students are unpretentious and willing to be vulnerable and collaborate with each other in the learning process. Students are always willing to help each other and want the best for themselves and their peers. 

What do you look forward to as an advisor?

The connection I have with my advisees is something truly special. From the freshmen overnight to the 4-year student lunch when they are seniors, being able to travel through high school with the same group of students and see them grow is remarkable. 

Why do you choose New Hampton School?

New Hampton Schools allows me to grow every day as a teacher. It has afforded me opportunities to stretch while being supported by a family of colleagues who are all pulling in the same direction to make our school and community better.

Jennifer McMahon P'12, '13, '16, '21, Interim Director of Studies

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

I like guiding the students through the process of learning so they discover their strengths and allow themselves to appreciate their abilities and potential.

What do you look forward to as an advisor?

I look forward to watching my advisees mature from young, nervous freshmen to confident seniors who appreciate all the special moments we have had together as an advisee group.

Why do you choose New Hampton School?

I choose New Hampton because of all the authentic relationships I have cultivated over the years with students, parents, and all of the Husky community.
