jeffs@burgundyfarm.org
Jeff is an alumni and current parent, and has been at Burgundy since 2006. His favorite Burgundy places are: the Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies (all of this West Virginia campus!), the Treehouse, and any classroom!

Prior to coming to Burgundy, Jeff served as headmaster for 10 years at Baltimore’s St. Ignatius Loyola Academy, a highly successful tuition-free, year-round middle school for Baltimore City boys.

Following graduation from Duke University, where he played varsity lacrosse and earned academic ACC Academic Honor Roll distinction, Jeff served as an administrator, teacher of English, coach, dorm parent and alumni director at his alma mater, McDonogh School (Baltimore). He later taught and coached for a year in the Baltimore City Public Schools before continuing his career as a teacher and coach at the Kinkaid School (Houston). Before his time in Houston, earned a master’s degree from Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English. Jeff later took coursework with Johns Hopkins University’s Program for Educational Leadership.

Jeff brings to Burgundy an educational philosophy that honors the individual needs of each learner and that focuses on meeting students where they are socially, emotionally and academically, building on children’s previous learning and life experiences. Jeff is a strong advocate of differentiated instruction and project-based learning and sees Burgundy as a prominent leader in progressive education and environmental science, as well as a model for diversity, social justice, and collaboration.

Jeff was a founding board member of the Washington DC SEED Public Charter Boarding School, is currently Vice President of the board for the Emerging Scholars program of Northern Virginia, a Prep for Prep academic and leadership program, and has consulted with several alternative, academically focused start-up schools that serve urban and under-served students. He is also a current trustee with the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and the Association of Independent Schools of Greater Washington. In addition to working with Washington’s SEED School and the Maryland SEED School, Jeff has served on the boards of the Lowell School (Washington, DC); Jobs, Housing, and Recovery (Baltimore); and Boys’ Hope (Baltimore).He is also an Outward Bound alum and outdoor enthusiast.

Jeff and his wife, Tee, have two daughters—Burgundy alumna Tonasia and current Burgundy student Tatum—a dog, Cameron. Jeff also has two older boys, Ed and David. Jeff’s interests include reading, creative writing, and the outdoors.
