Nicholas Soodik, Associate Director

At Poly, Nick held several positions, serving as the Associate Director of College Counseling, the ninth-grade dean, and a member of the English faculty. He has taught and advised every grade-level in high school and believes that, above all else, his responsibility is to know his students and to provide them with a nurturing and challenging environment in which to grow. He received his bachelor’s degree in English from Northwestern and his master’s degree, also in English, from Cornell. New to the North Shore, Nick enjoys the ambient sound of birdsong and the smell of the sea, though it might take him awhile to come around on New England’s sports teams.
Tracy Johnson, Office Coordinator
Tracy Johnson has worked at Pingree in the College Counseling Office since 1992. She earned her Bachelor’s degree at Amherst College before embarking on a career in the banking industry. She knows the College Counseling Office from the inside out, since she is also the mother of three Pingree graduates who were able to find their "perfect fit" colleges.
