The Admission Office
Came to Berkshire: 2013
What type of students do you encounter at Berkshire? I encounter a wide variety of students here at Berkshire, passionate about different things but all highly motivated to succeed. The students are all very friendly and welcoming with strong work ethics. Berkshire allows them to be comfortable with who they are as individuals while also collaborating with others to achieve their goals.
How do you see yourself preparing the students for school and for life? I try to share my opinions and advice on things based off of personal experience and knowledge. Helping students find out who they are and what their priorities are in life. Then helping them pursue their passions to the furthest extent possible and encouraging them to challenge themselves to do more than they originally thought they could.
How would you describe your relationship with students, specifically beyond the classroom? I want all the students I work with to feel comfortable enough with me to talk about anything. I like to establish a foundation of respect and trust so students know they have advocates on their side no matter what; this is their home away from home.
How would you describe the Berkshire community? The Berkshire community is a big family with everyone looking out for one another and supporting each other in their pursuits. Students should feel enveloped by this community, encouraged to follow their dreams, joining in a collaborative come up while also embracing the unique differences that make all of us special.
