Ben and Sarah Snyder (parents of Abby, Spring 2006) have been long-time friends and supporters of The Island School. In fact, Ben is a member of our Cape Eleuthera Island School Board. They are also long-time educators and administrators at Noble & Greenough School in Dedham, MA. They chose to take a sabbatical this year and we were lucky enough to be on their list of destinations!



Literally diving in, Ben and Sarah kept themselves busy during their time on Eleuthera. From collecting data with students on deep-water shark species and observing coral reefs forty-feet below in Marine Ecology, to helping faculty hone their craft after a class observation and participating in a Teaching Fellow’s Seminar, the Snyders left knowing quite well how busy an Island School student or staff can be. On top of all that, they still managed to find some time to relax and enjoy the warm weather before heading back up to New England!
