In early August this summer, I traveled to London for a few days to officiate at the wedding ceremony of Danny Robertson ’09. He and his lovely wife, Siobahn, had been married the previous year in a ceremony that was necessarily low-key due to Covid restrictions.

Once all were seated, I got the students from behind their desks, brought them to… continue reading

The Mind is its Own Place: In Conversation with Stephen Reed

An interview with Kate McCahill ’02

When I started at Northwood as a ninth grader, I was decidedly a nerd: small, sort of shy, dorky in my fleece and khakis. The friends I had were the ones I’d known in middle school, but they fit in that first year in a way I just couldn’t. While they had adventures on weekends, I stayed home and read. The only place I felt like I belonged, that first bumbling year, was in Mr. Reed’s English classroom, where I’d crack open the textbook, an assemblage of short… continue reading
