Faculty and Staff

Our Faculty

Consistent with the Bard MAT philosophy, each of our faculty members are active scholars in their disciplinary fields and maintain strong commitments to furthering the Liberal Arts and expanding educational opportunity in public schools. Field placements, approved employment, internships, and after-school placements  are supervised or supported by seasoned educators and community partners who share Bard’s academic values including Heart of Los Angeles and Longy School of Music of Bard College.
