Seth brings a life-long love of skiing and more than 20 years of public education experience to the Vail snowsports community.
Born and raised in the Mount Monadnock region of southern New Hampshire, Seth earned a journalism degree from Syracuse University in 1996, and then spent five years in Jackson Hole as a full-time PSIA ski instructor and outdoor educator. He returned home to New Hampshire to complete his M.Ed. in secondary social studies from Franklin Pierce University, and spent two decades in public education, mostly as a social studies teacher, in a rural high school of about 400 students. His passion for history inspired many students, and he also taught government/civics, economics, psychology, and geography. As a teacher, Seth spent countless hours helping students with essay writing, supporting arguments with evidence, and honing writing skills to pass their AP exams.
This Academic Coach position is a perfect melding of all of his interests, and Seth is excited to share his enthusiasm for learning, skiing, and life with VSSA student athletes.
