Faculty and Staff
Mid-Pen's faculty is a dedicated group of educators who inspire academic confidence by empowering diverse learners to reach their individual potential. In addition to sharing their specialized knowledge with our students, our instructors form a team that tends to the overall well-being and academic progress of every student - in the classroom, on the path to college, and in life outside of school.Tending to the overall well-being of our students means teachers form meaningful bonds with the kids. The result of this kind of engagement is a more deeply engaged, self-confident student with an enduring love of learning. Students thrive academically and socially by virtue of our caring, innovative, energetic, and inspirational faculty. Teaching is more than a job at Mid-Pen – it’s about playing a vital role in the daily life of a young person they imagine, dream, and explore who they will become.
