Academy welcomes new faculty

Chesapeake Academy’s first-year instructional faculty members include, from left, Niki Allen, Sara Condry, Nina Thompson, Catherine Emery and John Baker. Not in the photo is Rosetta Struse.

Classrooms were quickly taking shape last week as Chesapeake Academy’s teachers and students returned for the coming school year. Some new faces have joined the throng, and some familiar faces will be playing new roles. Head of School Julianne T. Duvall said, “I am excited about our talented and enthusiastic faculty. This collegial group of professionals is ready to present a dynamic, effective program for the academy’s students!”

Nina Thompson, a native Spanish speaker retired from a career as an administrative assistant in foreign service, will be teaching seventh and eighth grade Spanish for the upcoming school year.

Catherine Emery and Sara Condrey will be adding their talents to the writer’s workshop team this year. Emery has a background in education and journalism and currently contributes to various publications as a freelance writer. Condrey, a published author, is also excited to be sharing trade secrets with growing writers.

Niki Allen joins the CA faculty as a third grade teacher. Allen taught for several years in the King William County School System and most recently at Aylett Country Day School.

Rosetta Struse will join the Early Childhood Extended Day program as a caregiver. Struse, a CA parent, has been a faithful volunteer at the school and is happy to apply her talents to providing a quality after school experience.

John Baker, Chesapeake Academy’s new academic dean, has been active in the field of education since 2006. Baker has served at Kent School in Kent, Connecticut; Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy in Poultney, Vermont; The Caedmon School in New York, N.Y.; and The O’Neal School in Southern Pines, N.C., before coming to Chesapeake Academy.
