Ask girls about favorite teachers, and you’ll hear a very long list. Ask faculty what makes Winsor special, and they’ll typically say it’s the girls.
Teachers wonder how each student will excel, not if she will. “When I raise my hand, I can see the anticipation in their faces,” one junior explains. “There’s an expectation, and a belief, that what I have to say is valuable.”
Winsor teachers know their subjects intimately. Three-quarters have one or more advanced degrees in their fields. More than 10 percent have doctoral degrees, including several science and mathematics faculty. As colleagues, they collaborate in creative ways, learning from each other.
Passionate about Teaching
They are also passionate about what they do—and know how to make the material come alive. In class, they tear into issues and ideas, ripping away layers to get at the core of a lesson.
Committed to the Girls
Teachers are so much more: advisors, coaches, club leaders, role models. They care deeply about their students not only as learners but also as people.
As alumnae of every era will attest, Winsor teachers are “unforgettable.” The faculty’s reputation for excellence continues to draw not only students but also a new generation of stellar teachers.
