Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Rowland Hall’s teachers are united in their efforts to teach the content, culture, and character that today’s students will need to succeed in college and the workplace. Additionally, three quarters of our teachers have earned or are pursuing graduate degrees and are highly qualified with an average of 17 years teaching experience in the classroom.

Rowland Hall’s financial commitment to professional development is unparalleled among its peer Utah schools. In addition to their commitments as teachers, advisors, mentors, and coaches, our faculty members take time to keep current on the latest learning research, teaching techniques, curriculum development, and technological trends.

Our teachers’ backgrounds and interests vary widely. In fact, many are transplants to Utah who were educated in colleges and universities nationally, and even internationally. Our students’ horizons are broadened when these multifaceted role models share lessons learned from their personal pursuits, whether in the arts, literature, recreation, or travel.

Above all, Rowland Hall students perceive teachers as creating a caring, well-structured learning environment in which academic risk is encouraged and expectations are high, clear, and challenging.
