Elise London has spent more than two decades working in and learning from diverse independent school communities. She began her teaching career at Carolina Friends School in Durham, North Carolina, where her role evolved from full time math teacher to serving as the college counselor, dean of students, and sometimes philosophy teacher. She worked in the college counseling office at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, Massachusetts, before moving to Providence, Rhode Island, to serve as the Head of Upper School at Moses Brown School. After spending many years as the Chair of the Board of the Independent Curriculum Group, she currently serves on the Board of Trustees of One Schoolhouse.
Elise grew up in the school her parents ran on a small farm in Vermont, going from there to Williams College (BA) and Harvard University (MEd in school administration).
