Ted has been teaching since he graduated from Dartmouth College in 1977. He spent his first few years teaching at Vermont Academy, a boarding school in Saxtons River, Vermont. Upon leaving the academy in 1982, Ted joined Allendale Columbia as a history teacher.  He teaches history and economics to eleventh and twelfth graders.

Why did you decide to go into this line of work?
Teaching and coaching allowed me to engage with high school students in areas that have always been my passions – history and soccer.

What is the best part about working at Allendale Columbia?
The students at our school are, by and large, bright, enthusiastic, and engaging.

What’s your favorite hobby?
Reading; I am constantly looking for new history stories to make my classes come to life.
