Head of School's Letter

Welcome to the Head of School's Letter

I believe that communication is vital to the success of every organization. ASM is no exception! I write to our families frequently to inform them on a variety of topics that I consider important. These letters will give you a glimpse of who we are as a school community, what I value as a school leader, and the direction in which ASM is headed.

Interdisciplinary Projects

January 24, 2019

Interdisciplinary projects are a natural component of an ASM education. When students are able to make connections between different subject areas, they develop a broad and deep understanding of how the world is interconnected. Their approach to problem solving becomes more effective because they learn that multiple perspectives can inform their point of view. Interdisciplinary learning provides […]

Time to Unplug

December 13, 2018

The winter solstice will soon be upon us. The hustle and bustle of the holidays brings a special type of energy which helps me to endure the shorter days and colder temperatures.

Exercise Your Brain!

November 16, 2018

I think we all know that exercise is an important component in keeping our bodies healthy! In addition to improving our physical health, exercise also improves our cognition, or the ability to acquire knowledge. In his book Brain Rules, (2008) John Medina says “To improve your thinking skills, move.” Medina is a molecular biologist with a […]
