Lisa’s favorite Poly tradition is the annual Lower School Book Fair because it taps into her love of young adult graphic novels. Her favorite spot on campus is the Upper School Library balcony or a seat in the bleachers on Babcock Field watching her daughters play their favorite Poly sports! While away from campus, Lisa is working on her slice backhand and honing her ability to write upside-down and backwards (from left to right)!
Kate’s secret superpower is interior design. You can see her handiwork in the Admission office! The Lower School Garden is her favorite spot on campus, and she also enjoys both libraries. Outside of work, she enjoys running, camping, reading, listening to all kinds of podcasts, and going to museums. She is currently in grad school for an M.A. in Art History.

The spot where you can most likely find Esi on campus is the library courtyard on North Campus. Outside of work, she spends a lot of time chasing after her two sons as they scooter around the neighborhood.

BJ’s favorite Poly tradition is rivalry week! The classes really come together to win points throughout the week to try and “beat” the other grade levels. Arden Lawn is the best spot on campus according to her. It’s beautiful and relaxing any time of day. Outside of work she enjoys crafting, DIY, and gardening.
