WHEN BILL JOINED MARIN HORIZON ONE YEAR AGO, one of his
first tasks was to learn every student’s name. Being present and
building connections are central to his philosophy of student-centered
education, whether it’s between teachers and students, science and art,
or Mill Valley and Marin City.
Looking for Bill? You’ll probably find him helping with lunch duty in
the primary wing, practicing his part in the upcoming school play,
tackling algebra problems with middle schoolers, or reading aloud to
students at Horizon Community School—Marin Horizon’s partnership
school in Marin City.
Says Bill, “Just like we spark curiosity in our students and teach them
to embrace challenge, I hope to model these traits as we construct
our newest building, thoughtfully integrate new technologies into
curriculum, and evolve our signature outdoor education program in
this coming year.” But before he tackles these priorities, he’ll start
where he did on his first day—learning the names of every new student
who comes through the front doors.
