Penn Fellow2021

Originally from California, Edgar is a graduate of Kenyon College. While at Kenyon, Edgar studied psychology and philosophy, and played for the men’s soccer program, captaining the team his senior year. After college, Edgar pursued his passion for cultures, traveling to five different continents with the same trusty backpack. While in South America, Edgar worked as a teacher in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil while studying Portuguese. Dedicated to youth development through education and sport, Edgar also worked for an international non-profit organization committed to the cause in both Latin America and Africa. Upon returning to the United States, Edgar joined the faculty at The Thacher School in Ojai, California. There, Edgar served as the School’s inaugural Fisher Fellow, in which he taught AP Psychology and Spanish. He also helped coach soccer, track, and cross-country, led camping trips, and instructed freshman riders in the Horse Program. Currently, Edgar spends his summers at the Language School in Middlebury College, completing a M.A. in Spanish Language and Literature. He is thrilled to be joining the Deerfield Community as a Penn Fellow, and eagerly looks forward to “collaborating with such a fun and excellent community of teachers and learners.”
