After meeting the students and staff in 2014, Cody said he felt as though he returned home at SGS. The previous four years, he had been teaching, coaching, and leading at schools here in the United States and in Bangkok, Thailand. He received a B.A. in History, M.B.A. coursework, and Masters in Teaching at Western Washington University. Recently, he added an Educational Specialist degree in PK-12 school administration from the University of South Dakota. He is a hiker, soccer player, gardener, lover of learning, reader, writer, and science-fanatic.
Why I Love Middle School: Middle school is adventurous, challenging, and inspiring. Students and teachers take part in journeys of discovering new ways of learning, experiencing, and interacting with the natural world, our Seattle community, and our SGS family. We recognize that we grow at different speeds and in different directions. Alongside these changes, all our girls learn to take risks as collaborative catalysts, creating a community of joy, compassion, and creativity. I love middle school!
