Alex Pape JV Squash coach

Alex Pape

Alex Pape joins the Walker’s winter coaching staff for the 2021-2022 season as the JV Squash coach. Coach Pape fell in love with squash while attending Westover School where she played on the varsity level for several years before graduating in 2012. After Westover, Pape played for the University of Edinburgh’s Women’s Club team in Scotland where she constantly got into trouble for using the US scoring rules – whoops! She has also coached squash during summer programs for boys and girls at Westover and Taft.

Coach Pape currently teaches 7th, 8th, and 9th grade English at the Montessori School of Greater Hartford and manages the student business at the program’s Millstream Farm. She is really excited to be working with both new and seasoned squash players at the JV level, and can’t wait to share her love of the sport with her team.

Growing up within sight and sound of the ocean on the South Shore of Massachusetts, Carol spent many hours racing sailboats where she learned to read and respond to wind shifts and current – capabilities she has relied on as equivalent experience teaching and advising students. She has taught and designed many courses in her 30+ years at Walker’s. Most of her time has been spent in the History Department, where she has taught every grade except seventh. Curriculum design and collaboration in the classroom stand out as the most rewarding parts of Carol’s job. She was part of a team of teachers from across four disciplines who envisioned and taught the innovative Environmental Studies course. She led the team that designed 9th Grade Seminar, the flagship of the seminar program that grew to encompass grades 9-12, and has recently been retooled for the Capabilities Approach curriculum. She is helping to break new ground in this endeavor with the design of the newest of these courses, Sustenance and Sustainability. After teaching 10th grade English for a decade, Carol is now taking on senior electives in that department. Increasingly, she believes in the power of student choice within as well as among courses. Carol has been a member of many task forces and is a recipient of the Natalie Galbraith Chair in the Humanities. She has served in a variety of administrative roles that include Chair of the History Department and Dean of Faculty. She was also a class advisor for twelve years.
