After serving as Dean of Faculty for Teaching and Learning, Dr. Reid Prichett will be leaving Pingry to take the next step in his career. He was tasked with nurturing the faculty’s ongoing professional growth and developed the Assessment for Growth (AfG) procedure. During his tenure at Pingry, Dr. Pritchett additionally helped guide numerous faculty through graduate programs, led faculty to participate in more professional development events, and assisted with improving the productivity of Faculty In-Service Days.
Dr. Prichett received a BS in economics from Williams College, an MA in Curriculum and Instruction of Mathematics Education, and a PhD and MA in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before he came to Pingry, he “taught, coached, and worked in different administrative roles.” As a teacher, his goal has always been to help students become better learners by understanding how they learn. In addition to serving as Dean of Faculty for Teaching and Learning, Dr. Prichett taught Intermediate Algebra with Geometry and coached the Upper School wrestling team. Dr. Prichett will fondly look back at his favorite memories of Pingry in the classroom when he got to “work with students… and reflect on student learning with teachers.”
Thank you, Dr. Prichett, for your contributions to Pingry, you will be missed.
