Supported by an atmosphere of inclusion and opportunity, Pingree students are encouraged to stretch their thinking, push the limits of their own capabilities, and reach farther.
"For me, science and engineering is my way of helping the world. That's what I want to do."
"We'll be reading one book in history and it will cross back to what we're talking about in English...All the connections that I've made are completely mind-blowing."
"There's always somebody with an opposing point of view and there's always somebody with another point. Everybody's always very engaged in the topic of discussion."
Mr. Olson — Math
"I love bringing in other subjects that relate to math. We do a poster project in my class where we research the ways math informs art and architecture."
MRS. THORPE — Spanish
"Students get excited to be able to connect to their learning and to know that later, they can really use and draw upon the content learned in class."
It's thanks to my own past teachers that I teach now. They inspired me, motivated me, and guided me towards a love of discovery and learning.
I enjoy working with young people when they're doing a lot of growing (and I benefit from tapping into their energy and insight when they aren't looking).
We are a community of learners who take risks, ask hard questions, and push each other to be our best selves.
I teach because I like to share what I know and learn at the same time!
