Head of School
M.S. Mathematics for Teachers, University of Massachusetts Lowell
B.A. Mathematics, Cornell University
After an initial start to her professional career in the US Air Force, Nancy made the move to education, teaching middle school mathematics at The Miami Valley School in Dayton, OH. Convinced that teaching was her calling, Nancy returned to her home of Andover, MA to pursue her masters degree and continue her teaching career at Phillips Academy Andover. During her 22 years at Andover, Nancy taught all levels of high school math, coached cross country and track and field, and served as a dormitory house counselor and advisor. She led the school’s accreditation self-study in 1999 and in 2010 was appointed Associate Dean of Faculty, where her primary responsibilities included overseeing faculty evaluations and directing the teaching fellow program. Nancy’s husband Corbin, originally from Lander, WY, introduced her to Teton Valley, ID and the Jackson area. Since 1999, they’ve spent summers and a full sabbatical year in this area. A firm believer that independent schools must take a leadership role in partnering with communities to improve quality and transformative educational experiences for all children, Nancy enthusiastically joined TSS as the head of Journeys School on July 1, 2015. Nancy, Corbin and their three children enjoy hiking, skiing, and floating the local rivers.
