Erin Duffy, who has served the Landon community since 2007, is the Head of the Middle School. She has worked as the assistant head of the Middle School, a dean, technology coordinator, history teacher, and basketball coach among other positions.
The power of community is one reason Duffy loves J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. "I enjoy delving back into the world of Harry Potter because it is set in a school, there is a constant sense of adventure, and the characters of Harry, Hermione and Ron remind me of the inherent goodness of people," she said. "Their actions are inspired by a sense of love and spirit of teamwork that offer compelling models for kids and adults."
Before arriving at Landon, Duffy worked at Mercersburg Academy (PA), Wilbraham & Monson Academy (MA), and St. Brendan School (CT). She was a four-year member and captain of the women's basketball team at Williams College. Duffy also graduated from Taft School (CT), where she earned 12 varsity letters playing soccer, basketball and softball.
