  • A Lead Mentor's Journey

    Karen Whitmore
    As I walked through the Milne Library at Derryfield the other day, a former student remarked, "Mrs. Whitmore, I thought you retired."

The student seemed to understand when I said, "I couldn't stay away. This way I am able to support new teachers, connect with former colleagues, and see how students like you have grown...."

    Lindley Shutz
    Every August, my family of six creates our schedule for the year. With an ER doctor who works nights, weekends and holidays; two grown children in the working world; a senior looking at colleges; and a freshman who is passionate about travel soccer, this past year was especially challenging, as each person communicated, via text, facetime and conversation, a wish list and demands of work and school life. Over the years we have clarified what we value most: to compromise so that each person be supported in their personal path; to have dinner together as often as possible; and--the most challenging-- we find time for reunion. We aim to give time to what we value....
