New Hampton School is thrilled to welcome Meredith Brown, History Department Chair, as the 2017-2018 Convocation speaker. Last year, the student body selected Ms. Brown to receive the O’Connor Excellence in Teaching Prize, awarded to a teacher who is caring, inspiring and represents the best of New Hampton School.
Ms. Brown joined New Hampton School as a member of the Arts Department in 2008. Since her arrival, she has demonstrated a range of talents and an unending level of energy to be there for every student in her care, and on her stage.
She models passion, persistence and dedication for the students. As Ms. Brown continued her work in the theatre, her desire to be more engaged with students in the classroom led her to the history department. Here, she quickly established the same positive rapport with her students and her classes recognized her sincere passion for the subject matter. Ms. Brown inspires her students to be lifelong learners by actively soliciting feedback from her students and colleagues so that she, too, will continue to learn and grow.
As a faculty member beloved by her students, she will no doubt have attentive listeners as she helps to open and set the tone for the 2017-2018 academic year. Following a fun-filled and robust orientation weekend, we look forward to gathering the community on the lawn in front of Pilalas on Sunday, September 3rd for the schools 197th Convocation ceremony.
