Tim comes to Deerfield in the fall of 2020 after teaching history at Medford High School and coaching tight ends for the Tufts University varsity football team. Tim is a graduate of Williams College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in history and leadership studies. At Williams, Tim was a four-year varsity football player and starter on the 2010 undefeated NESCAC championship team. Upon graduating, he spent one year as a teaching intern at Phillips Exeter Academy and, subsequently, five years on active duty as a United States Marine Corps officer. Tim’s desire to teach continued to grow as he served alongside young Marines all over the world, including in Africa and the Middle East. Following active duty, he completed a Master of Arts in Teaching at Tufts University. In addition to teaching history, Tim has coached football, wrestling, and track and field in the past, and looks forward to supporting Big Green athletics in any way that he can. He and his partner Nancy can often be found trail running, practicing yoga, and enjoying the outdoors.
