The Facts

About the Landon School faculty

Landon has a unique approach to teaching: the teacher-coach-mentor model. The 125+ members of our diverse, dynamic and highly educated faculty are also coaches, advisors and leaders. They serve as role models and find teachable moments everywhere: in the classroom, performance hall, art studio, gym, fields, and the community beyond our campus. Because they connect with the students in multiple ways, our teacher-coach-mentors know where our boys shine and where they can improve, ultimately helping them navigate the challenges of their young lives so they can succeed in life after Landon.

For example, Head of Upper School Ehren Federowicz is also an advisor, teaches a foundations class for freshman, and coaches junior varsity golf.

Middle School math teacher Andrew Johnson often mentors boys in both the middle and upper schools, serving as both a Grade 6 and junior varsity basketball coach. He also serves as the advisor for the Middle School math club.

The Lower School's Shannon Lechner not only teaches third graders during class time, but also coaches fifth grade soccer and lacrosse during athletics. 

With a an average class size of 14 students, teachers provide individual attention and tailored approaches to maximize learning for each student. Small class sizes also facilitate lively discussions as teachers utilize best practices to deliver the curriculum in innovative, engaging ways.
