RA welcomed eight new faculty and staff members on campus with an orientation and luncheon in The Bridge. They will be working in a broad range of capacities and collaborating with other faculty and staff members to create a learning experience and culture that students can’t wait to engage in every day. 

The Preschool and Lower School faculty will see some new faces. Danielle Getchell joins us as head teacher for Grade 1. The 2s class has gained Karen Lummis as an assistant teacher. Regina Yacko, previously a teacher on the Redding Campus, will now be instructing the 4s class on the RA campus. Libby Meuller joins the Library, where she will teach Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 classes in the afternoons. 

The Marketing and Communications and Development Departments have also expanded. Andrea Grady is serving as communications writer and social media specialist. Annamari Mikkola has also joined the MarComm department as a full time photographer, graphic designer and videographer. Clancy Healy is serving as the manager of the AF and alumni engagement for the Development Department. 

RA also has a new systems administrator, Kosta Myzithras. 

Welcome, Patriots! We  are looking forward to a great school year ahead!
