I first fell in love with Miquon when I attended as camper over thirty years ago. I was growing up in Cheltenham and this hidden-away treasure in the woods was a retreat from my suburban childhood. When I arrived 8 years ago to work as an in-house reading tutor, I found the campus very much unchanged and it brought to mind nostalgic memories of swimming in the pool, sculpting woodland creatures in the art room and playing games on the field.
Prior to working here, I taught at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Agnes Irwin, and West Chester University. Miquon, however, feels very much like home to me with its strong commitment to meaningful, child-centered pedagogy. I consider it a privilege to work with such a thoughtful, engaged teaching staff and invested family community.
