“What’s truly great about living on a campus is how students get to see their teachers in so many roles. They see them as coaches, during relaxed activities, and as parents with their own families. They interact in the dining hall and throughout the day. And occasionally, they get to see them enjoying themselves at laser tag or at a bonfire. And, that’s when teachers become more approachable,” said Ms. Roth.
“During my first visit to campus, I was struck by the warm feeling from the Resident community. This is a place where students are happy, interested, and confident. They look you in the eye when they say 'hello,' and it is clear that they enjoy being here. The Hun School felt like a place where I wanted my children to live and grow up” said Ms. Roth.
Ms. Roth comes to The Hun School from Saint Catherine’s School in Richmond, Virginia where she was dean of students. Ms. Roth believes that mutual respect between faculty and students is the key to resident harmony and wants to continue to develop programs that will emphasize comfort and trust. She espouses the importance of personal responsibility, healthy and respectful decision-making, and the value of diverse perspectives. She has designed curriculum programs and extra-curricular opportunities that foster leadership skills, as they relate to those values. She and her family live in Poe Dormitory.
