Introducing New Faculty -- part 1

We are very excited about our new faculty for the 2010-2011 school year -- talented, experienced educators who bring tremendous gifts and strengths to our school community. Since late June they have been settling into campus life and planning their classes for the fall, working with the returning faculty. The first installment of introductions:

Burrett McBee will be teaching language arts. Burrett joins The Meeting School from Plymouth State University, where he has been an adjunct professor of English since 2006. Burrett has a wealth of experience teaching teenagers in an independent school setting. He has taught high school English and theater at Germantown Friends School, Tilton School (where he was the chair of the English and theater departments), and The Harvey School (where he was the chair of the English department and theater director). He will be living in Helios House with his wife, Rhu. Burrett earned his BA in English from Utica College of Syracuse University, and a MA in Theater from the University of Illinois.
Rhu McBee is our new Admissions Director and will be overseeing marketing. Rhu comes to The Meeting School with more than 16 years of teaching experience in independent schools. Rhu also has expertise in independent school admissions, marketing, and college counseling. She has also been a library assistant. Rhu will be living with her husband Burrett in Helios House. Rhu earned her BA in Communications from Northwestern University, and her MEd in Integrated Arts (Secondary) from Plymouth State University.

Welcome to TMS, Burrett and Rhu!
