Fessenden Announces Two Administrative Appointments

A Message From Head of School Steve Armstrong

In writing to you today, I share news of two administrative appointments at Fessenden, both beginning July 1, 2019. Sean Guthrie will join our community as Head of Middle School, and Liza Feldman will serve as our Director of Learning Resources.

Sean Guthrie will come to Fessenden after serving as Principal of the Young Achievers Science and Math Pilot School in Mattapan, Massachusetts. Prior to Young Achievers, he was a Principal Fellow, a Sixth Grade Team Leader, a Curriculum Designer, and a sixth grade math teacher at various schools in the Boston area. Sean is a two-time graduate of Boston College, earning both his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and his Master of Education. An athlete of considerable acclaim, Sean was captain of BC’s football team as a senior, and he continued his football career in the National Football League.

Liza Feldman will join Fessy after one year at Lawrence Academy in Groton, Massachusetts, where she is currently serving as an English teacher and Learning Coach, and after many years as a Team Leader and department chair at the Carroll School in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Liza earned her Bachelor of Arts in English from Amherst College and her Master of Arts in Teaching from Simmons College. An accomplished college basketball and softball player, Liza has coached both sports at various high schools in the Boston area for many years.

We are fortunate that Sean and Liza will be joining the Fessenden community. They are talented, dedicated educators who will positively impact the lives of our students. Please join me in welcoming them both to Fessenden.
