Mary Wescott has returned to WBAIS as the Director of Boarding and lives in the house with the boarding students. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a Master’s degree in Mathematics Education. In her last life chapter, she taught middle and high school math, including 23 years teaching at WBAIS. She is a highly regarded, accomplished educator with over 30 years experience.
Passionate about conservation and the environment, Mary has worked with many student groups around the world to raise awareness about pressing environmental issues. She will continue to inspire youth to take action to reduce their impact on the environment through school and community sustainability programs. Mary’s 21 year old son was born and raised in Israel and attended WBAIS from 1st through 12th grade. This gives her the unique perspective of the school and its programs from both a teacher’s and parent’s point of view. She looks forward to creating a safe, caring and nurturing “home away from home” for the boarding students while instilling values of kindness, honesty, mutual respect, and integrity within the boarding community.
