This is my Head of School blog. I use it to reflect on my own learning, my wonderings about education, and questions about how to shape our school, Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill. I also use it to share with the community things I experience at school. It affords me another way to be present with our ever-growing community of learners.
Tonight I stood in the Blue gym next to Warren Gould watching a group of Trinity students, from third grade to Upper School, along with some Trinity string pioneers (Nancy Brooks and Mary Fran Boyce) and community musicians play Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, a favorite of mine and a longtime pipe dream for Trinity. Strings teacher Carrie Engsberg directed this glorious performance, and the standing ovation was well-deserved. Warren and I were hooting and hollering at the end!
The evening was a great showcase of strings from the Lower School (taught by Nancy and Mary Fran) to the Middle School to several chamber groups of Upper Schoolers led by Carrie.
