Know Your Pelicans

What is your favorite thing about Packer?

It's a place where I can help students do anything from researching why the Mayan empire collapsed to hanging drywall in a Baltimore Habit for Humanity site.

Describe a favorite or memorable moment in your classroom at Packer.

I'm pretty sure it was the time a bunch of Latin students sang the Backstreet Boys "I Want It That Way" in ChapelĀ in Latin.

Or maybe it was the time I threw a Thin Mint cookie across the library and Matt Hughes '14 caught it in his teeth. (Not that I approve of food in the library).

Name a work of art, literature, music, or film that you hold dear and explain its influence on you.

I am a Beethoven fanboy. There is this amazing moment in the last movement of the Ninth Symphony, just before the chorus erupts, that makes me feel like I'm rushing headlong into the stars.

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

I refurbished a pet cemetery for my Eagle Scout project.
