"Whitfield School has earned its adoring parents and alumni by genuinely caring for students and families. I am honored to serve Whitfield with many of those devoted parents and alumni. Our work together is always meaningful, but it is especially gratifying when I’ve been able to sit in on classes led by creative, energetic teachers and when my daughter tells me stories that demonstrate her strong academic, extracurricular and social engagement with the school."
