Jim Norton brings his English expertise to campus, teaching AP English, American Literature, and Introduction to World Literature. Jim will take on our community service program in the winter and coach Boy’s Lacrosse in the spring. He lives and works in Upper Burroughs with his dogs, Maggie and Zoe. Before WMS, he taught at Newton South High School in Newton, MA. He attended Choate Rosemary Hall as a high school student, is a graduate of Oberlin College, and received his MTS from Harvard Divinity School.
Megan Killigrew, Teaching Fellow, is our last addition to campus. Megan teaches American Literature, coaches Mountain Biking, and will also coach Cycling in the spring. She does duty in Solar. Before arriving at WMS, she attended Stratton Mountain School and graduated from Dartmouth College, where she was the captain of the varsity women’s Nordic Ski team and member of an improv theater group. Megan plans to move that theatrical tradition to WMS with a new improv club here on campus.
Renee, Jim, and Megan have already given so much to our campus in the weeks that they’ve been here. They’ve guided students through the first few weeks of classes and through the North Country region during Orientation. They’ve mentored students in the dorm and in the field. We are so pleased to welcome them to our WMS community and we know that their drive, energy, and openness will help to shape our community, both this year and in the years to come.
