Kingswood Oxford welcomes new earth science and technology teacher, as well as coach, Sarah Nolan to the community. Ms. Nolan studied physics and geology at State University of New York at New Paltz (SUNY New Paltz), where her love of science grew.
Before arriving at KO, while also completing her bachelor of science at SUNY New Paltz, she was employed at the university’s library. “My job was to help maintain the library’s organization and to help patrons navigate the library’s resources,” she said. Ms. Nolan also lived in New Paltz, New York before moving to Connecticut.
This year, Ms. Nolan will hone her science skills teaching Form I earth science, while also co-teaching a technology class for Upper Prep students. “I think I have always loved science,” Ms. Nolan said. “As a child, I was always curious and enjoyed learning about how the world works in my science classes.” This fall she coaches Middle School field hockey. In the winter, she plans to coach Middle School girls B basketball. During the spring term, she expects to coach either JV or varsity girls basketball, as well as middle school softball.
Although coming to KO was a big change for Ms. Nolan, she said that all of her colleagues have been extremely kind and welcoming. She is looking forward to many of the hands-on activities and labs she will be doing with her earth science classes this year.
In her free time, Ms. Nolan enjoys spending time outdoors, like hiking and traveling. “I am excited to explore the area and take advantage of all the town has to offer, as well as the many hiking trails nearby,” Ms. Nolan said.
Ms. Nolan, KO is delighted to have you as a part of the community and we wish you all the best in your endeavors!
