Meet Annie Wedekind
English and History Teacher

I find particularly sharp joy in supporting a student grappling with something personally challenging — whether it's digging into sources for an essay on Ancient Egypt, nerving themselves to perform in a Greek play, or pushing through doubt to finally see themselves as a poet — and then applauding when they've conquered that mountain.

Meet Liana Frasca
Communications Specialist

My favorite part of my job is when I get to sit down with students and listen to them talk about their experience at Packer. Our new Student Team for Diversity and Equity in Communications (S-DEC) is the Communications Office's opportunity to discuss what equity looks like through the lens of Packer students.

Meet Mario Garcia
Science Teacher

On day one of class, I had several students thank me for the day’s lesson as they exited the classroom. The simple gesture completely caught me off-guard. In my 8 years teaching, I had never been thanked by students for teaching them. It is honestly something I will always remember and a great way to start day one at Packer.

Meet Katie Cooke
Music Teacher

Packer is a community that has allowed me to learn more about myself as I interact with my students and coworkers. This is my first year of teaching which is known to be a really challenging one, so I've been able to see Packer as a really precious life chapter in which I get to grow a lot as a person and educator.

Meet Shane Cappuccio
English Teacher

I try to teach students how to approach and manage their workload in way that works for them. I routinely give students options about the content they explore and the order in which they explore it. The big lesson there is that, once we are out of school, we have a lot of control about how we explore our passions, and I want my students to be prepared for life long learning.

Meet Yves Kabore
Head of Middle School

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We're better when we work together. Better outcomes, more brain power, collaboration. You want to go far, you have to get the right group of people together to accomplish great things.

Meet Kerry Kline
Science Department Chair, AT Biology Teacher

The Science Department [at Packer] is a group who is passionate about students, science, and lifelong learning. We are a group of people excited about the natural world and what t has to teach us. We want our students to experience it for themselves, and we love finding ways to help them do it.

Meet Asia Franks
Mathematics Department Head, Mathematics Teacher

The Packer community (colleagues, students and families) is one of the most thoughtful and kind communities I have known. The students here always amaze me with their lively enthusiasm, curious ways, illuminating aspirations and kindness toward others, but most of all, I love to see them being so joyful as their world opens up in front of their eyes!
