If you know anything about me you will know that I fall in love quickly. When I was 18 and a recent high school graduate, my father sent me to Turkey to learn his mother tongue. Pretty much as soon as I got there, I fell in love (with my now husband), and six months later, we married. I never looked back. My Turkish is still not that great.
Thirteen years ago, I walked into Flint Hill’s Lower School, and I fell in love. I fell in love with the classrooms, the teachers and even Klondike! I never looked back. I remember crying each year at back-to-school night, thinking about how lucky my son was to be a student here.
So, my go-to emotion is love. Once I love you, I also expect a lot from you and for you to love me as much as I love you. That goes for my husband, my friends and even Flint Hill.
One of the biggest reasons I love Flint Hill so much is because it loves me back. Every time I ask the school to give me more, it somehow manages to do so.
I am so excited for the next four months at FH and for the Husky Love that I hope you all will feel. We have so much fun planned! Please volunteer when you can, and come to everything you are able to; I’ll be there!

Last Wednesday, we hosted more than 100 new families at the New Parent Information Night in the Peterson Middle School. These families have been accepted and have made their decision to come to Flint Hill. It was a fantastic evening to meet other new families and begin to get acquainted with all things Flint Hill. …
There are very few things that make me as emotional as Flint Hill. These last few days weren’t any different. On Friday, the Lower School welcomed fourth and sixth grade parents to Open Classroom. These visits give a first-hand glimpse into the adventures of learning. I heard from parents that got to tour a student-created…
