After one year in the English department, Ms. Daphne Lyman’s time on the Belmont Hill campus is coming to a close. In her first year teaching, Belmont Hill offered her the chance to “get my feet wet and figure it out.” This past year she taught two sections of English I. In the fall she co-chaperoned the Model UN outing at the Brown University conference. In the winter she could be found on the alpine ski slopes alongside Mr. Trautz and Mr. Feldman. This spring she was the head coach of the sailing team, leading them to a 6-3 record.
When asked about her experience at Belmont Hill, Ms. Lyman said “it’s truly a great community, especially because everyone is so smart and hard-working — dedicated to their jobs, including academics, sports, whatever it may be….Everyone here just cares a lot about this community, and that’s an awesome thing to be a part of.”
Ms. Lyman said that she currently has a couple of options lined up, “a few irons in the fire,” among which are teaching a few more years elsewhere, or going to graduate school. She certainly had a positive impact on the lives of many this year, and will definitely be missed around campus next year!
