Our Faculty

Guiding Study

Webb’s unbounded curriculum is rooted in the strengths of its faculty, a dedicated team of educators who bring a wide array of experience, skills, knowledge and passion to their fields. Many are active in curricular innovations beyond Webb’s boundaries, training and guiding fellow teachers, pursuing their own scholarship and engaging in professional activities.

In addition to leading their courses, Webb’s teachers traditionally support students in other academic, student life and athletics roles on campus.
