Faculty & Staff

Prospect Sierra teachers are masters of their craft. Lifelong learners themselves, they participate in regular professional development opportunities where they hone their skills and stay up to date. Outside of school, they lead community and national workshops.

To our teachers, Prospect Sierra is home and many of our alumni come back to Prospect Sierra to teach. With faculty and staff care a top priority in our Strategic Plan, teachers know they can continue to learn, grow, and thrive – providing stability and continuity for your child.

Staff Directory


We appreciate the Prospect Sierra parents who have entrusted their children with us. For some, this is their first independent school experience, and they love that our inclusive community feels like a neighborhood school. Many enjoy helping out in classrooms, driving on field trips, or volunteering at our annual Panther Picnic. They recognize the value of raising their children in a community where people look out for one another and care for each other. But most of all, they want their children to thrive academically and acquire the tools to build a better world.


Prospect Sierra students are known for being articulate, compassionate, and joyful. Our students love coming to school each day to think deeply, learn about their emotions, and take care of one another. Our graduates go on to great high schools and colleges, and even more importantly, learn how to make a difference in our world. See first-hand what makes Prospect Sierra such an amazing place.


For more than 30 years, Prospect Sierra has helped our students develop into grounded, intellectually engaged, and compassionate leaders. From founding international service organizations to making an impact through community engagement; from becoming innovators to thriving as dancers, artists, writers, and musicians, Prospect Sierra alumni make a positive impact in the world wherever they are. Our Student Council honors young changemakers through our annual Alumni Action Award, inspiring current students to make a difference.
