Head of School Search


It is with deep appreciation and respect that I share with you that I will complete my tenure as Head of The Ethel Walker School at the end of this 2014-15 academic year. While there is never a perfect time to leave a place you love, and leaving Walker's will be very difficult, I am confident that Walker's is in a particularly strong position and is well poised for new leadership. We will be moving to Wilmington, DE, where I have accepted the position of Head of Tower Hill School, effective July 1, 2015.

It is with mixed emotions that I share Bessie's letter to me explaining that the Speers family will be moving to Wilmington, DE where Bessie will become Head of Tower Hill School on July 1, 2015. We wish the entire family all the best in their next chapter, and are pleased they will remain Walker's parents through Nellie's graduation in 2016.
