Patricia Batchelor

History and Social ScienceTeacher

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.
