Mary Churchill has been an educator for the past nineteen years having worked at both public and independent schools on the east and west coast. Mary graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology and then went on to pursue her Masters in Secondary Science Education from the same university. Her classroom expertise is in the field of biology and chemistry, having taught AP biology for the past fifteen years as well as collaborating to design, develop, and deliver hands on science curriculum designed for life and physical science classes. This past year, Mary taught biology and health at San Domenico and coached the Cross-Country team. Prior to joining the SD community, Mary spent eight years working at Marin Catholic High School where she has served as Science Department Chair, Head Cross-Country coach, Vision Committee Member for the incorporation of Technology in the classroom, and served as club advisors for the MC Bee Club, Bio-Olympiad Team, and Wildlife Preservation Club. Mary loves to integrate her personal passion for the outdoors with her passion for teaching and frequently designs experiential learning opportunities for her students in the wilderness. Outings that Mary has designed and facilitated have included field studies on the prairies in Montana as well as glacial studies in Juneau, Alaska. Mary and her husband Mark are both educators at San Domenico and are parents to a young son and daughter who both love exploring the natural world.
“My favorite part of being a member of the San Domenico Community is working on a beautiful campus that serves as a living laboratory, being at the same school as my daughter and husband, and teaching local and international students.”
