Collected ’05 notes

Annie Gibbons helped collect some ’05 class notes:

Rachel Cohen: Last year I got my Masters of Education from the Harvard School of Education, and am having a great time putting it to work. I’m currently living in Cambridge, MA with my boyfriend, and teaching 9th grade Reading at a Charter High School in Lynn, MA. It’s been great to live near friends and family, and I hope to stay in MA for at least one more year.

Zachary DeWitt: After two great years living and working in San Francisco, heading back to Boston in the fall to attend Harvard Business School.

Peter Tufo: I just moved back to NYC after two years on the West Coast to work as COO of a clothing company my two friends (who I met through Chris
Kempner ’04) started called Faherty Brand. Excited to have a big group
of DA interns, Will Hess ’12, Brooke DeWitt ’12, Charlie
Pasciucco ’13, Mollie Laverack ’11, Charlotte Dewey ’11 and Olivia Koufakis ’11 helping out throughout the summer.

Cassie Buckhart writes in after recently visiting Caroline Woodworth at her new home in London. “Caroline and I had a great time traveling around Europe together. We signed every guest book we could with Deerfield ’05 as an entry (note: you can also find Deerfield ’05 guest book sign-ins throughout parts of Beijing and Hong Kong, and potentially somewhere in Las Vegas). This fall Cassie is moving to Paris to complete her final year of graduate school for an MFA in furniture design.”

Mari Silipo: Living with great friends in Cambridge (including Mary Adair ’04) and loving life in Boston. Working in sales and recruitment for a start-up called TurningArt, a Boston-based e commerce website & service aiming to make more artwork more accessible for more people. Check it out! Getting home to visit Coach as often as I can and psyched to celebrate his 200th career football win this season. Go Big Green!

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement.
