I started at Hopkins in 2009 after a circuitous route to independent school admissions. I attended Duke University, then Washington University School of Law and was a practicing attorney for several years, and then an editor at a legal publishing company before finding my start in admissions at New York Law School. From there I moved to independent school admissions, spending 9 years at Convent of the Sacred Heart, Greenwich, before arriving here at Hopkins. I have been involved in admission work for more than 20 years and love opportunity to meet young people who are smart, talented, motivated learners and who join those qualities with kindness to others. My husband, Peter, who also works at an independent school, and I live in Deep River, CT with our two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Finn and Darby, and our Maine Coon cat, Murphy. Most of my free time is spent actively competing with the dogs in both AKC breed and performance events.
Head Adviser Class of 2020 / Modern Language (Spanish)
I joined Hopkins in 1989. I was looking for a place that felt like an extension of my family since mine was so far in Spain, and I found it in Hopkins. I love teaching Spanish to my eager students. My goal has always been to make class fun so that they look forward to each and every class. I joined the Hopkins Admission team a few years later. I love introducing families to Hopkins and talking about the wonderful place that it is. I am the 9th grade Head Adviser, so I get to introduce all new 9th graders to Hopkins as well. I enjoy watching films, reading and spending time with my family. I can be reached by email at: email@example.com
I am thrilled to have joined the Hopkins community, beginning in August of 2015 as an Assistant Director of Admission, Advisor, Assistant Football coach and Assistant Baseball coach. Before Hopkins, I began my admissions career as a Tour Guide and Senior Interviewer as an Undergrad at Trinity College, before serving as an Assistant Director of Admissions at The Gunnery. I attribute my love of prep school admissions work to my experiences as a student at Episcopal Academy (Philadelphia, PA) as well as the hands on experience of touring/interviewing countless families during college. I felt that EA prepared me extremely well for the college workload and I often enjoy conveying my own personal experiences when speaking with families who are brand new to the private school world. When I am not busy working on campus, I love to play golf, sing, bowl, follow my hometown sports teams (Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, Flyers) and spend time with my dog, Buster!
I look forward to meeting you on your trip to campus!
In 2014, I joined the Hopkins community as the Director of Diversity. I also teach English and serve as an Adviser. Born in Korea, I was adopted and came to America as an infant. I grew up in the suburbs of New York City and relocated to Connecticut for college. At the University of Connecticut, I completed an integrated Bachelors/Masters program in Education. I studied English, Education, and Women's Studies in undergraduate school and completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
For several years, I taught English in public school and helped to coordinate a cross-cultural exchange initiative with sister school partnerships in China, France, and Japan. This led me to independent schools where I served as the Associate Dean of Community Affairs, working in diversity, inclusion, global education, service learning, and student life at King Low-Heywood Thomas.
I have particular interests in singing and music (playing guitar, musical theater, and a cappella), identity and social equity, and traveling/facilitating trips abroad. My goal in life is to see and understand as much as this great wide world has to offer! I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their experiences, so it is a pleasure to serve on the Admission team.
I returned to Hopkins in the fall of 2009 after having spent 21 years at a boarding school teaching history, advising, coaching, running dorms, training prefects, and working in Administration as the Director of Residential Life, the Community Life Department Head, and an Assistant Director of Admission. I have always known that it was my experience as a Hopkins student that fostered in me both a love of learning and a desire to work in independent education. After earning a BA in International Relations from Bucknell and an MA in International Affairs from George Washington, I knew I wanted to return to an independent school and have an impact on the whole student in the same way that so many of my Hopkins teachers had inspired and guided me. After a long and rewarding career at boarding school, I was presented with the opportunity of returning to the Hill and helping many students begin their Hopkins journey. I could not help but feel as if life had come full circle. In addition to interviewing students, I train and organize the school's Tour Guides as well as coordinate the Visitor/Host Program. In my spare time time I love exercise and yoga, reading, and hanging out with my two black labs and my husband.
Originally from Los Angeles, I began my career at Hopkins as a rising junior at Yale in the summer of 2004. That summer, I worked as a teacher-intern at Breakthrough New Haven, an academic enrichment program hosted at Hopkins serving talented students from the New Haven area who attend public and parochial schools. I worked for the program for three summers and volunteered for it during the remaining school years of my college career.
Even though I was a supposed to be teaching students at Breakthrough, in reality I learned more those summers than I managed to impart to my students. Aside from learning student-centered pedagogy or how to persevere when daunted by truly difficult tasks—good teaching is really hard—, I learned that I truly love every moment I spend in the classroom. Most importantly, however, my work at Breakthrough New Haven taught me that I could make a life for myself serving others and have a blast doing it. Having grown up in a family that stressed the values of striving for excellence while taking personal responsibility to help others, my experience as a teacher-intern also exposed me to the perfect place to live out those values as an adult… Hopkins School.
I have been a faculty member of Hopkins since 2006. Since then, I have taught and advised in the Junior School, taught New Haven History in the Upper School—New Haven is my area of specialty—, served on the Financial Aid and Admissions Committees, and continued working with Breakthrough New Haven as both the Assistant Director and History Mentor Teacher. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring cities, giving tours of New Haven, and attending community festivals, fairs, and celebrations wherever I happen upon them.
I am very excited to join the Hopkins Admission Office as of August 2015. After growing up in Cheshire, CT and attending town schools, I enrolled at Choate Rosemary Hall as a four year day student for high school. I went on to Scotland, to the University of St. Andrews, where I received a Master of Arts in Mediaeval History and International Relations. In 2010 I rejoined Choate, spending two years in the Student Activities Office before moving full time into Admission. During my time at the school, I served as a dorm parent to ninth through twelfth grade boarding girls, and advised ninth and tenth grade day students. I also coached Archery, advised the Fencing Club, and worked with the Girls Squash Program, spending two years as Head Coach. It is with great enthusiasm that I join the Hopkins Admission Team, and I cannot wait to show prospective families what a special place this is!
I joined the Hopkins Admissions team in September 2011. After graduating from Hobart William Smith Colleges (Geneva, New York) in 1990, I began my teaching career at Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Connecticut as a math teacher, coach and residential faculty. In 1998, I received a degree in Special Education from St. Joseph’s College in West Hartford, Connecticut. With my teaching experience and degree in hand, I established and managed learning centers at the Renbrook School in West Hartford Connecticut and The Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, Connecticut. I also worked for seven years at Salisbury School in Salisbury, Connecticut as the Director of the Rudd Learning Center. I am currently the Director of the Academic Support Program at Hopkins. During my years in the classroom as a teacher and director of various academic support programs, my mission has been to support students and teachers both in and out of the classroom. Finally, I am married to Holly McGlennon Treat, an educational consultant, and we have two children both at Hopkins; Andrew who is in the 10th grade and Amelia who is in the 7th grade.We like to travel during the summer months to Gloucester, MA. I have a passion for sports (Red Soxs, Bruins, and Patriots) and music which I share and enjoy with my family. I can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I began my career at Hopkins in 1980 as a 9th grader. After Hopkins, I attended Wellesley College where I majored in Psychology. I began my career in admissions at Trinity College as the Director of Multi-Cultural recruiting. It was my job at Trinity that brought me back to Hopkins. After a recruiting trip to campus and reconnecting with many faculty members that played such an important role in my life as a student I returned to Hopkins in 1995 when I was hired as Hopkins’ first Director of Diversity. After nine years as the Diversity Director, I was excited to get back into the Admission Office full-time.. I enjoyed everything about my independent school experience and I get to share those experiences with people every day. My campus responsibilities include advising, overseeing our Parent Ambassador program, and assisting with all Admission Office programming. You can often find me in my office laughing, mentoring, or just spending time with our students. They are truly a remarkable group of young people. I live in New Haven with my husband Douglas, and our two children, Douglas and Jordan. I can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com.
I came to Hopkins in September of 1997 as a math teacher and a junior school adviser, having taught for one year in public school after completing my Masters Degree in Education at Fordham University. In the fall of 2002, I became a Head Adviser and served as the Head Adviser to the Ninth Grade for several years, specializing in the transition into high school at Hopkins. It has been a privilege to guide each incoming class of intelligent, active, and caring individuals, as they have learned to navigate the academic, athletic, and social challenges that Hopkins offers its ninth graders. In the fall of 2012, I became the Head Adviser to the sophomore class and will continue as the Head Adviser to the students of the Class of 2015 through their graduation. In addition to teaching math and Head Advising, I have coached the JV Math Team and have been the Faculty Adviser to the yearbook. I became a member of the Admission Committee because I truly love teaching and working with the amazing students we have at Hopkins, and I wanted to have a part in shaping each incoming class. When I am not at Hopkins, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.
