Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, Carlyn is excited to join the Belmont Day School community from her previous position advising high school students throughout their college application process. Carlyn graduated from Middlebury College in 2016 with a degree in English and American literature. Carlyn then worked as an admissions counselor for Middlebury, before transitioning to The Stevenson School in Carmel, California, where she taught pre-kindergarten to grade four Mandarin and guided prospective families through the admissions process as a lower and middle division admissions associate. When not at school, Carlyn enjoys hiking, trying new recipes and cheering for the Saint Louis Cardinals.
My Capstone Project would be... an exploration of the evolution of American culinary culture through immigration.
If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose... Dolly Parton! She has had an amazing, long life, and has been an important influence in American culture and education. I would love to learn more about her.
Someone I admire or consider a hero is... my Mom! She's an incredible role model and teacher. Her ever-evolving teaching practice and unending kindness is inspiring.
