Left Brain, Right Brain, Math and Music for Teacher at The Hun School
As a teacher of math and music at The Hun School, Ryan Brown described every day as “a beautiful mix of left brain and right brain. The music makes my math teaching more creative, and the math makes my music classes more structured, logical, organized.”
Mr. Brown, who has been teaching at Hun for ten years and a year ago won the School’s James M. Byer ’62 Excellence in Teaching Award, attributes his success to his passion for math, music, and teaching. In addition to teaching freshmen and sophomores in geometry honors, juniors and seniors in AP calculus, and an AP music theory course, he also serves as music director of the winter musicals.
“It helps when you really really love what you do, and I love what I do,” he said. The feeling is clearly reciprocated by his loyal students. “He’s one of our most popular teachers,” said Hun Communications Associate Alicia Waltman. “They love him.”
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
