As Director of Student Life of the YK Pao School, I have spent the past three and half years working in conjunction with a private foundation and the Chinese government to help design, organize and run a traditional US/UK model boarding school in Shanghai. We opened the doors in 2011 with 78 boys and girls in the seventh grade and now have over 375 students grades 6-9 and have been planning our senior addition of 10th, 11th and 12th grades. This has been an exciting and rewarding experience that I have cherished and enjoyed. I even was able to play some hockey in the International League of Shanghai! However, more importantly, I have married a colleague from China and we now have a 5 month old girl named Anjolina May Elias (aka A.M.E.) . We have decided to move back to Deerfield where I will Head the Math Department at Eaglebrook School. Looking forward to seeing classmates for our 30th next June!!! Best wishes.
