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!

We are the Huskies! Recently I have been contacted by quite a few Husky parents that joined our pack over the past couple of years. Covid has made it harder to connect and I am slowly catching up. My feelings about Flint Hill families have been re-affirmed, our school attracts the best people! I was…
Thanksgiving Reflections and Looking Ahead Arriving from Istanbul, Turkey, to Santa Ana, California, in the fall of 1958, my father did not speak English nor did he know anything about the American holiday of Thanksgiving. What he did know was: he had the day off from his English class, everywhere was closed, and he didn’t…
