Deerfield Magazine Spring 2012

Meghan Mozea – May 15, 2012

The Spring 2012 Deerfield Magazine features stories about Jonathan Harris ’98, Deerfield student’s summer programs, and the engineering of a well oiled school.  A PDF version of the Spring 2012 Deerfield Magazine is available for download

Magazine Features:

  • An Ode to Code: ”When Jonathan Harris stepped in front of an audience of 80 reporters and staffers in a New York Times conference room one grey, drizzling afternoon in midtown Manhattan, he had an agenda: He planned to tell them what they were doing wrong, and how to fix it.”
  • Read the new article SPF 12: Summer Program Fundamentals: ”‘…my role was to come in and formalize the support and make it more uniform, that addresses the potential gap that exists for whether your parents know someone, or are connected or not. If your parents have a connection, that might be good for you; but now, if any science teachers at Deerfield have a connection, that will be good for all of our students.’ —Ivory Hills”
  • All Together Now: “Dean of Faculty John Taylor seats himself in the conference room before anyone else arrives and quietly sips his mate. Many believe that drinking yerba mate is good for the soul, and can actually be a form of meditation or reflection—simultaneously resting and stimulating the mind. If this is true, then it’s a perfect time for mate, as one by one department chairs join him around the table for their weekly symposium, which is sure to include some intriguing conversation.”
