Lower School Teacher Theresa Fox was named Associate Director of Lower School, effective July 1, 2020. This new role at WT emerged to expand the Lower School’s excellence in meeting the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional needs of children.

She is organized, strong, and is able to see the truth in people. Theresa’s connection goes beyond the classroom; she is able to see the whole child, not just one defining moment.”
