The Hudson School’s educational success is rooted in our diverse and dedicated faculty made up of individuals who are expert in their ﬁelds and passionate about sharing their knowledge with children. Many of our teachers have taught at the school since it was founded in 1978 or joined us shortly after, providing our school with continuity and stability.
Some of them wear multiple hats, serving as instructors and administrators. Most hold advanced degrees. Through regular professional development, teachers keep up with the newest technologies and diverse pedagogical methods. They see themselves not only as practicing experts in their respective ﬁelds but also as role models for students expanding their own horizons and discovering their own potential. The enthusiasm that each of these instructors brings to the classroom is infectious. Students are easily caught up in their excitement for learning.
I want to always be learning. I love history and astronomy and theater because there will always be so much more I want to learn. And I love working with kids. I love their energy and fearlessness. I love that they have no idea that they are attempting the impossible in producing a play, achieving world peace, understanding the cosmos, facing a complex future I cannot conceive of.

The school’s innovative teaching staff includes poets and authors, actors and theater directors; dancers, singers and musicians; athletes, sports enthusiasts and ﬁtness trainers; photographers, sculptors and painters; computer technicians, video and ﬁlmmakers; former Peace Corps volunteers, guidance counselors and psychologists, anthropologists and historians; linguists and classical scholars; mathematicians, engineers and scientists, among others. Teachers come from all over the world, bringing a wide range of diverse experiences and perspectives to the school and, because of the school’s proximity to the greater metropolitan area, teachers are able to take advantage of the many nearby cultural opportunities and turn the concept of a “school without walls” into a reality.
