Kevin’s life always seems to throw something new and exciting at him, and one of his greatest joys as a teacher is seeing students embrace their own experiences in life. Growing up in a rural setting helped foster Kevin’s interest in nature—gardening specifically—and his travels abroad gave him a better sense of the world. During part of his undergraduate work, Kevin studied in Normandy, France. He then returned to France after graduating for a more permanent stay in Perpignan to work as a teacher. Vive la Tramontane ! Another quick change in his life took him to Richmond, Virginia for a time, and then he arrived in Massachusetts to teach in the Berkshires. He joined MacDuffie during its first year on the new Granby campus.
Outside of the classroom, Kevin is an avid gardener—obtaining Master Gardener status during his undergrad work. He also loves a good cup of coffee and simply enjoys watching life happen.
