Carole Glantzow Zboray

Carole Glantzow Zboray

Middle School Science Department Chair

What's your proudest moment as a teacher?
One of my proudest moments was when a former 8th grade Science student, who is now a cardiac surgeon, came to speak to my current 8th graders.

What inspires you?
Selfless acts inspire me. Seeing people do things simply because it is the "right thing to do," not because it is "expected" or someone is watching or because of potential "rewards."ing the best of what this country has to offer.

Tim Cohen

Tim Cohen

Upper School History Teacher, International Dean

What's the silliest thing you are passionate about?
International Talk Like a Pirate Day (every September 19th, matey!)

What's your teaching philosophy?
I want my students to make connections - whether it's comparing different eras or cultures, seeing how our perceptions of the past have shaped their own lives, or a thousand other things. History is more than just a jumble of names and facts; it's a living organism that each of us is continually helping to create even as we seek to understand it.

Nandini Dutta

Nandini Dutta

Who is your hero (and why)?
My father. The best human I have ever known. And pretty sure will ever know.

What is your favorite city and why?
London, England. Ancient, modern, history, politics, art, architecture, food, politics: London has everything! Best city ever!

Wendy Jankowski

Wendy Jankowski

Kindergarten Teacher

What's your proudest moment as a teacher?
When a parent tells me their child has become more self-confident and more willing to try hard things as a result of being in my and my co-teacher's class. Awesome moment!

What's your teaching philosophy?
Kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. I strive with my amazing co-teacher to create an environment in which a child feels they are loved and cared for, as well as challenged and supported. At the kindergarten level, we want children to learn to love school, to know making mistakes is ok, to empathize with and care for our fellow classmates and that "we can do hard things!"

Dr. Circe Dunnell

Dr. Circe Dunnell

Upper School Visual Arts Teacher

What's your teaching philosophy?
I am not a teacher, I am a guide. As a guide, I try to provide my students with the tools to think and act for themselves, to promote learning, connection, and empathy.

What's your proudest moment as a teacher?
There isn't one moment, however, every time I communicate with a graduate and they tell me how important RPS was to their success in life, that is a wonder.
