Laura Hansen is the new Head of the Upper School.She came to Collegiate in July from the Kingswood-Oxford School in Connecticut, where she was head of the Upper School, a position she has also held at Greenwich Academy, a girls' school in Greenwich, Con­necticut.Laura currently teaches 9th grade English and advises 9th graders, in addition to her general work on the curriculum and administration.Her goal is to come to recognize Collegiate in both its public face and its private face.
Laura began by relating several events that marked her introduction to Collegiate.In the spring moving-up cere­mony, she enjoyed watching the 8th grade boys look up to the balcony ...
Now that the school year is under way, Laura has had one-on-one meetings with students, and notes that while the usual teenage irony is present in Collegiate boys, this is not present when they talk about their studies.She believes it is "all about pride:" that the boys take great pride in their school and their work.She is also impressed by other aspects of Collegiate, such as the President of the Board of Trustees coming to speak to the student government, and the interaction of the senior "peer leaders" with the younger students, and noted how much the boys appreciated these interactions.Laura herself has attended student government meetings, participated in prepa­rations for a spring community service day, and instigated parent coffees-which she has found very useful and plans to continue, in part to address the psychological issues that are so important in the boys' lives.
Laura feels that her primary role is to support the teachers so they can do their jobs, and to help and guide the students.It is important, she said, no matter how long one has been in the job, to treat each boy's situation as its own, new story.
Another important role for her involves parents.
