Convocation 2009 celebrated the tenth year of the George C. Lee Family Teaching Chair. The Lee Chair supports faculty new to Milton—both excellence in their teaching and comfort in their sense of belonging at the School. The deep commitment of a learned and experienced group of teachers is Milton’s great treasure. The Lee Chair provides leadership and financial support for the effort to help new faculty meet one another and their esteemed veteran colleagues, and to get to know the culture of a unique learning environment. It helps faculty during their first years at Milton grow to value this environment where students and faculty are deeply engaged with each other in learning, in and out of the classroom. Head of School Todd Bland named Eleza Kort, performing arts, K–8, to join Michael Kassatly of the mathematics department as co-holder of the Lee Teaching Chair.
