Three Named Teachers Emeriti

Posted September 3, 2008


Concord Academy conferred the honor of teacher emerita/us on three teachers September 2, recognizing their long tenure at CA and their exceptional commitment to the intellectual and personal development of their students.

Receiving the honor were three recently retired teachers: Madge Evans, who taught science from 1969 to 2007; Gary Hawley, who taught science from 1974 to 2007; and Stephen Teichgraeber, who taught English from 1974 to 2007.

Evans, Hawley, and Teichgraeber join eight other teachers emeriti, including Doris Coryell, now deceased, who was the first to receive the distinction, in 1987. Other teachers emeriti include Bill Bailey, Janet Eisendrath, Philip McFarland, Sylvia Mendenhall, J.J. O’Connor, Ron Richardson, and Sandra Rosenblum. All were on hand—along with CA Board of Trustees President Ellen Condliffe Lagemann ’63—to celebrate the accomplishment of Evans, Hawley, and Teichgraeber at a small reception at the home of Jake and Pat Dresden.

Head of School Jake Dresden told the legendary CA teachers that they were responsible for CA’s special ethos. “I have come to appreciate,” he said, “how important all of you have been to the whole spirit of the school.”
