"I have worked at MICDS for 20 years. My children went to school here (JK -12). This is my home, my village. I love the people I work with and my students. I wake up every day energized and excited to come to work and that is a wonderful feeling. I count my blessings to be part of this amazing community."

Jim Lohr, PE, Coach for Track & Field and Girls Cross Country

"One of the amazing things about working at MICDS is that the administration really does a wonderful job of supporting educators who pursue excellence in teaching. There have been so many outstanding learning experiences for faculty who receive sabbaticals that directly lead to deeper learning for our students."

"I love how our Mission and Purpose, literally the WHY of the School, guides us throughout everything we do, from strong teaching and learning, joining in thoughtful conversation about what it means to be human, engaging in compassionate service and coming together as a community. We really mean what we say when we talk about living into that Mission."

Dana Self, Choir Director and AP Music Theory Instructor

"My favorite part about working at MICDS is the wonderful, young musicians who walk through my classroom door each day. They give their very best in all that they do. To hear a group of students say "thank you" at the end of each class period is something you don't hear in other schools. Our students truly appreciate their teachers.

Erin Hamill, Director of Global Learning & Upper School Community Service

"My favorite part about my job is the variety of people I interact with every day. I have the opportunity to help and witness our Upper School students immersing themselves in other cultures through cultural immersion and service trips, and I enjoy working with our international students and exchange students from our sister schools each year. I continue to grow and learn each day through the daily interactions with families, students, faculty and the wonderful opportunities I have been given."
