It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Harvard-Westlake. Or, at least, to Harvard-Westlake’s place on the Web, where you will find all sorts of information about our remarkable school community.

Harvard-Westlake has made a profound difference in my own life. It was here, as a young English teacher, soccer coach, and college counselor, that I found my calling as an educator. At Harvard-Westlake I discovered the joy of working with extraordinarily talented students and colleagues who are committed to accomplishing exciting and meaningful things together.

I invite you to explore these pages and to learn about the amazing things that our school community has to offer.
