About Our Faculty

The faculty and staff at VMS possess a wide range of experience and talents unified by an unsurpassed commitment to teaching and nurturing emotional growth. In and out of the classroom, as a member of our community, you will be asked to contribute as a mentor, coach, tutor, and guide as well as other roles that emerge. You’ll work with peers who are smart, energetic, positive, motivated, and always involved. At the end of the day, you won’t be counting the minutes remaining but wishing you had time to accomplish more. It’s also likely that at the end of the day you might skin up Vail Mountain with your colleagues or go on a sunset mountain bike ride on nearby trails.
