Fifth Grade Teacher
Mr. Atherton is a native of Colorado and a graduate of Hillsdale College. He will join us to teach for his second year.
Mr. Atherton holds his bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Language. Naturally, he says, his focus there gave the fifth grade’s literature and grammar studies a dear place in his heart. But that loyalty is not untried: any pick from among the year’s math, science, and history curricula will put him in high spirits. Nevertheless, he considers it a special privilege to introduce his students to Don Quixote and Shakespeare.
In the spring, he coaches sprints for the Upper School track team. He is also known to cook, to carve, and to garden.
