Behind the educational philosophy and inspiring natural environment that is Mount Madonna School (MMS), is its most significant ‘natural resource’: a diverse faculty of enthusiastic, personable, creative, and innovative individuals, who together bring a broad range of personal and professional experiences to the community. Over the course of this school year, we look forward to ‘introducing’ some of these teachers to you, to offer a new perspective on the people who are guiding MMS students, and to help you know better the people behind the course syllabi.
Whether they’re learning about Egyptian pharaohs, ancient Greece, the Native American diaspora, America’s colonial period or other topics, middle school students in Amy Neff’s history and Core classes are engaging with a vibrant and rich course of study full of stories, heroes, legends, treachery and war.

Reentry to school or work after vacation often brings new vision and fresh perspective. The down time of summer revitalizes adults and children alike. Greeting the youngsters on Day One is one of my favorite moments of the school year. Students return with taller bodies, longer or shorter hair, huge smiles (sometimes with new front teeth) and jump off the bus looking for faces both familiar and new at the bus stop.
