  • Kyle Augustyniak, English

  • Dr. Owen Boynton, Associate Director of Curriculum & Professional Development, Director of the Center for Innovation & Design, English “The obvious and true answer [to what is your favorite memory] is meeting Dr Gregory. But two other moments standout: working on the satirical paper, The Cobalt Moon, in 2018 and 2019, and attending Cabaret in 2020.”

  • Dianna Carroll, Advancement

  • Dillan DiGiovanni, Wellness “What I’ll miss most about MBS are the students who actively participated in all my classes and expressed the ways they felt their lives changed as a result of all they learned. I’m grateful to know I had this positive impact on them and for the opportunity to spend time with these incredible students!”

  • Denise Elliott, Assistant to the Head of Upper School “I will miss everyone here at MBS. The vitality has kept me young at heart.”

  • Dr. John Farhat

  • Chris Finn, Art and Design “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a school… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes. Hard to say what I’ll miss the most, but, of course, I will miss the students and teachers and the many friends I have made here. They have lifted me up and made me a better person, and I will always be grateful!”

  • Dr. Angela Hahn, Science

  • Andrew Holbrook, English Department

  • Dr. Lisa Ievers, Mathematics “What I will miss most about MBS is the energy and enthusiasm of my students. It made me look forward to coming to work every day.”

  • Kelly Mauger, Mathematics

  • A’Dorian Murray-Thomas, English Department, Associate Direction of DEIB

  • Sharon Phelan, English

  • Roger Richard, Director of Instruction, History

  • Dr. Linda Sisco, Center for Teaching and Learning

  • Jenna Sumner, Guidance, Center for Teaching and Learning “I will greatly miss both the students and the faculty at MBS. I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work here for 13 years and I love the warmth, care and support of the community.”

  • Monya Taylor Davis ’88, Advancement “One of my favorite memories is the Homecoming football game back on October 2. That day the weather was perfect and many alumni came back to enjoy Alumni Reunion/Homecoming. We inducted Bob Doran ’74 and Colin Larmond ’08 into the MBS Athletic Hall of Fame. After the Hall of Fame ceremony, the alumni enjoyed a tailgate, and then we all came down to the field to watch the varsity football game. It was the end of the 4th quarter and we were down 6-0 with less than a minute left in the game. Senior James Marinello scored a touchdown and then sophomore Ethan Roitman kicked the extra point and MBS had a truly thrilling 7-6 victory!!! It was great! It was such a perfect way to end the day – it was like a movie. That’s one of my favorite memories from this year.”

  • Carol Wooldredge, Executive Assistant
