Anna loves problem-solving and investigating how things work, and is passionate about helping students unlock challenges and develop skills both in the math classroom and in the wilderness.
Anna was born in Russia and grew up in Moscow before her family immigrated to New York where she attended middle school. After earning her BA in chemistry from Harvard, she moved to Cyprus, where she taught math and physics at the American International School of Cyprus for seven years, and spent most weekends out on camping trips for the international outdoor program called the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Since then, she has taught at the United World College (UWC-USA) in New Mexico, UWC Maastricht in the Netherlands, the High Mountain Institute (HMI) in Colorado, and at New Mexico School for the Arts. Anna loves taking students into the wilderness and has led multi-week backpacking trips in the Pecos Wilderness, the Grand Canyon, the Blue Range Primitive Area, and the Sawatch Range of the Rockies.
She lives on campus with her wife, Ari, who is an outdoor educator, wilderness medic, and writer; along with their dog, Wodehouse.
