New Faculty: Carla Davies-Vue
Help us welcome Carla Davies-Vue, Breck's new Upper School Counselor. Ms. Davies-Vue graduated with a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, an M.A. from the University of Michigan, and an M.S.W. from the University of Minnesota.
We asked the question, "Why are you passionate about teaching?" Ms. Davies-Vue said, "I am passionate about helping students feel good about themselves as learners and individuals. I am also passionate that we all need to spread kindness and help others as part of the Breck community and the larger Twin Cities community. I am motivated by my own family to create a place where everyone feels included and is valued for what they bring to the table."
She's also a Breck parent. Her son Cheng will be in third grade this year.
Outside of Breck, Ms. Davies-Vue enjoys watching professional and college hockey. She also enjoys knitting and spending time with her family at their cabin up north.
Congratulations to Emre Adabag, Margaret Broyles, Andrew Cheng, James Clinton, Samantha Detor, Gunnar Evenstad, Ekemini Jones, Grace Medeiros, Sam Schoenecker, Dylan Vincent, and Niels Wu, who were named National Merit Semifinalists by the College Board.
Beth Gaffga returns to Breck as our new Middle School English Teacher.
