  • An ardent believer in the importance of teaching and coaching, Scandling continues to share his delight in Shakespearean drama with students and to encourage wrestlers and polo players to believe in themselves and their teams.  A former Division 1 wrestler at Davidson College, he has coached multiple Class A and New England individual champions in assisting and leading the Deerfield wrestlers since 1987. Having never played water polo, Scandling learned the game as the coach of the coed JV team in the early 1990s and then led the girls to the New England title in 1998, the team’s second year of competition.  The girls won another title in 2013 and finished second three times.  In the ten years he has guided the boys’ squad, the team has won four New England championships and finished second once.

  • Prior to joining the faculty at Deerfield, Tricia taught European history and helped coach the varsity swim teams for three years at Taipei American School. Tricia and her husband Michael love to travel and learn about various cultures and their histories.

    Tricia attended Williams College for her undergraduate studies in history and psychology. After working in children’s publishing and then teaching both world and U.S. history at Loomis Chaffee, Tricia enrolled in graduate school, earning dual Master’s degrees in International and World History from Columbia University and the London School of Economics.

    Tricia’s other great passion is swimming. She swam competitively from the age of five through college. At Williams, she also served as the co-captain of the women’s team her senior year. She has coached swimming since she was 17 years old and she is thrilled to have the chance to continue this work with the boys’ swim team at Deerfield.
