Geoff Theobald Introduced as New Upper School Director
The School is enormously pleased to announce that Geoff Theobald has agreed to become BB&N’s new Upper School Director, starting next academic year. “We were blessed to have a truly exceptional group of candidates vying to succeed Mr. Jack Knapp as director,” said Head of School Rebecca T. Upham, “and for Mr. Theobald to stand out among them really points to the extraordinary leadership skills, temperament, and connection with students that he possesses.”
Theobald has worked the past five years with high-school students and teachers as head of the Senior Program at Yale University for the Exploration School, a highly regarded non-profit summer enrichment program. Prior to that, he had served in a variety of leadership roles—Academic Dean of the Upper School, Admissions Director, Financial Aid Director, Mathematics Teacher, Coach, Assistant Dean of Students, and Director of Community Service—during 13 years of working and teaching at his alma mater, Milton Academy.
“I am simply thrilled to be joining the BB&N community,” said Theobald. “I have been so impressed with the level of care, respect, and commitment all of its members consistently show for the process of learning, and I eagerly anticipate partnering with adults and students alike in helping the School continue to function at the forefront of educational excellence.”
