I am a writer

Whitney Schultz

English Department Chair
Teacher
Advisor
Advisor to the School literary magazine, Tidbit

“Being in the classroom teaching literature again has reconnected me with my own passion for writing and reading. My students motivate me through their curiosity and excitement, and I am pushed to read more for my own sake, but also to have new and exciting things to bring to the classroom.”

MA, Fine Arts in Creative Writing, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

I AM A HISTORIAN

Ryan Tanner-Read

Teacher in the History Department

to their lives."

them shine!”

We are an amazing school, and we are always striving to become better.”

“It is magical here at Oldfields.
I have seen girls enter, lacking self-confidence, shy in demeanor, and with little direction. Upon graduation, I see poised, confident, young women. We find something special to foster in every girl, and that is how the transformation begins.”
