The Teacher as Liberal Artist

We are a Liberal Arts School. What does that mean for our students, and what does that mean for our teachers? Hear Mr. de Vicente at the Open House, and Mr. Tom Longano at the recent Heights Lecture address these important questions.

About the guest:

Tom Longano

Tom Longano grew up outside Washington DC and has a degree in philosophy from The University of St Andrews in Scotland. He taught at an all boys elementary school for four years, where he had so much fun telling stories that he often forgot to teach more important subjects, like spelling and math. His students didn't seem to mind. He loves encouraging boys to read, especially boys that think reading is “not their thing.” In writing down the stories he shared with his students, he hopes to inspire a wide audience of young readers. Tom’s Boy Stories collections have now been read by thousands of imaginative, crazy boys. He’s currently working on his third collection of short stories, among other exciting writing projects that he can't wait to share (one is a full-length musical).
