Aviation Curriculum and Culture Takes Off Under Direction of Retired Navy Pilot
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
Pilots have the greatest office in the world. It's one of the simple-yet-effective pitches from Middle School teacher Bill Tatomer to pique interest in aviation. At Rowland Hall, interests are piqued. Middle schoolers pack Mr. Tatomer's aviation electives. Upper schoolers recently started a lively Aviation Club. One recent alumnus—Davis Kahler '17—is studying at Westminster College to become a pilot, and some current students want to follow suit.

From Recurring Nightmares to Teacher Heaven: Erika McCarthy's Teaching Journey
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
Flashback to the day in 1973 I declared my major at Westminster College and my grandmother quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson: "The secret in education lies in respecting the student." Today, over 40 years later, I still believe this quote is true. I have tried to not only respect but to build a relationship with each and every one of my students and their families throughout my career.

Embracing Curiosity and Discomfort on the Path to Cultural Competence
Monday, November 20, 2017
In 2011, Rowland Hall's Board of Trustees approved a diversity mission that affirmed the school's commitment to building cultural awareness, cultivating an inclusive environment, and appreciating how our differences create a stronger community. The school's Inclusion and Equity Committee—first created in 2008, and strengthened with the board mandate in 2011—has been hard at work implementing an action plan to bring the values of this diversity mission to the forefront. According to Upper School English teacher Kate Taylor, who co-chairs the committee with Lower School principal Jij de Jesus, a significant long-term goal is "to provide more consistent and across-the-board training opportunities in inclusion and equity topics for our faculty and staff."

New Upper School Fitness Program Teaches Wellness and Time Management
Monday, November 20, 2017
Over the past several years, enrollment in physical education (PE) classes steadily declined in the Upper School. Rather than getting discouraged by the lack of participation—and the subsequent lack of course offerings—PE teacher Mark Oftedal embraced a growth mindset. He saw the failures of the existing PE model in the Upper School as an opportunity to try something new: a Personal Fitness program that launched in September and is already creating buzz inside the Lincoln Street Campus hallways.

Six Years After Near-Fatal Rowmark Car Accident, Tenacious Hank Shipman '13 Sets Sights on Med School
Monday, November 20, 2017
Train daily for a month. Focus on even the smallest details to shave milliseconds off your time. Travel across the country to a race. Crash right out of the gate. Your weekend's over. It's a seemingly discouraging chain of events for ski racers. But it primed Hank Shipman '13 for perseverance after a near-fatal Rowmark Ski Academy car accident April 9, 2011.

'The Music Man' Builds Community at Rowland Hall
Monday, November 20, 2017
If you were lucky enough to attend one of Rowland Hall's performances of The Music Man November 10-11, chances are you left with an earworm. Meredith Wilson's musical about unlikely love developing between a traveling salesman—who has made a career out of swindling townspeople—and a savvy, late-blooming librarian is full of songs that will stick with you. "Ya Got Trouble," "Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little," and "Shipoopi" are some of the most memorable show tunes, and the music is one of theater teacher and director Gary Lindemann's favorite things about the show.

Tracing our Roots Back to 1867
Monday, November 20, 2017
Rowland Hall has observed a handful of different anniversaries during the past 50 years, which has left some in the community confused about the math behind our sesquicentennial celebration. They might remember celebrating 125 years not too long ago, and wonder: how and when did 1867 become the date we cite as the school's founding?
