  • Becca was born a "fac brat" and spent her first eight years of life at Deerfield. Having left the Pioneer Valley for about twenty years, she's now back on campus as a faculty member, and is excited to have returned. Becca attended Bowdoin College and received an undergraduate degree in sociology and Africana Studies. She then moved to the West Coast and taught middle school history at the Lakeside School. After two years in the Pacific Northwest she returned to the East Coast and earned a master's degree from Brown University in American Civilization and one from Boston College in history. Becca then returned to the classroom. At Beaver Country Day School she taught various history courses ranging from the History of the Middle East to Black Intellectuals to World History in the 20th Century. In the past she's coached soccer, squash, and Ultimate Frisbee, and is happy to be coaching squash and softball at Deerfield. Becca said although Deerfield is definitely different than it was when she was a kid, she couldn't be happier to be back.

  • Hannah Insuik returns to Deerfield as a Penn Fellow after graduating from the Academy in 2013. She comes from Colby College where she majored in Biology and had minors in both Chemistry and Philosophy. At Colby she worked in the neurobiology lab studying circadian rhythm proteins in crustaceans, played on both the varsity women’s volleyball and ice hockey teams, facilitated conversations surrounding violence prevention with athletic teams, interviewed prospective students as an admissions fellow, and served as a community advisor. Hannah also completed an independent study researching mental health on college campuses and created a program that Colby uses to educate its students, faculty, and staff on matters of mental health.

    Hannah was a four-year member of both the Varsity Women's Ice Hockey and Volleyball teams while at Colby, and served on the Student Athletics Advisory Committee. 

    Her extensive work in campus life, athletics, and passion for learning led her back to Deerfield where she is extremely excited to continue following her passion for academia and community as a teaching fellow in the Science Department. As a teacher, coach, and mentor Hannah is particularly excited about helping to mold well-rounded and creative students through the intersections of Deerfield life in and out of the classroom.

  • Jessica joined the Deerfield community in 2011 as a member of the Advancement Office.  After three years she migrated to the Athletic Department to serve as the Associate Director of Athletics and Assistant Varsity Softball Coach.

    Jessica attended the University of Massachusetts and earned a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology.  She recently graduated from Northeastern University with a master’s degree in sports leadership.  Jessica is also a NSCA certified strength and conditioning coach (CSCS). 

    A Massachusetts native, Jessica lives nearby with her husband, Peter, and their two children, Carter and Palmer.
