After all, he met Mary Bruce Gray ’99 at the University of the South when she was just a Freshman and he was just a Sophomore, and they’ve been together ever since. After all, he wanted to be a teacher and a leader, circuitously finding his way to independent schools via a variety of other institutions. And after all, Tim happens to love Middle Schoolers.

Spin…Spin…Spin…“Mr. Duckie are you in there?” I can still hear the preschool voices followed by the knocking on my door forming a line 20 kids deep.
