MARK CUTLER

Since arriving at Andover in 2003, Mark has been pushing limits in his academic, athletic, co-curricular, and residential roles, implementing in all these realms his philosophies on experiential education and expeditionary learning.  He has had great success designing community-based projects in Spanish 530, 510, and 511 with partners in Lawrence schools and non-profit organizations; developing leaders and environmental stewards in Outdoor Pursuits; reimagining the academic experience in Science 410: Sense of Place with Christine Marshall-Walker; exploring intersections of ancient and modern cultures in the B.A.L.A.M. and H.U.A.C.A. Projects in Latin America with Donny Slater; and fostering empathy, mindfulness, and sustainable habits in Draper Cottage and Fuess House.  Inspired by all these endeavors, as well as a lifetime of experiential learning opportunities of his own, Mark has devised a project that ties together his passions for educational adventures beyond the classroom.

Mark earned his B.A. in Spanish and education from St. Lawrence University in 1998 and his M.A. in Spanish from Middlebury College in 2003.  He is a founding and current board member of the Independent Schools Experiential Education Network and a recently elected board member of the Lawrence History Center.  He and his wife, Melanie, are from Andover and have two daughters and a dog.

BRIAN FAULK

Instructor in Chemistry
Institute Fellow: Reimagining Chemistry

After earning his B.S. in chemistry and A.M. in Chemical Biology from Stanford and Harvard, respectively, Faulk joined the Andover chemistry department in the fall of 2006. He is equally passionate about teaching our introductory levels as he is teaching organic chemistry and has been inspired by the themes of the Tang Institute to reimagine Chemistry 250. Faulk is also equally invested in our golf program and has coached the squad for the last seven years. He lives in Taylor Hall with his wonderful family — his wife Catherine and children Jack and Juliet.

ANDY HOUSIAUX

Instructor in Philosophy and Religious Studies
Institute Fellow: Mindful Community

This project supports community members — students, staff, and faculty—in their cultivation of mindfulness in daily life. The overarching goal of the Empathy and Balance pillar of the 2014 Strategic Plan identifies “mutual understanding and individual well-being as essential to a thriving community.” Mindfulness practice can play an important role in enhancing individual health and cultivating empathy in our interactions with others. To that end, one aspect of the program will partner with the Empathy and Balance Strategic Plan Implementation Group to introduce existing school-based mindfulness curricula to PA students. Another part will work with faculty and staff to support their own practices of mindfulness, both at home and at work. Throughout, we will be looking for ways to bring this practice to interested members of the PA community in a variety of settings and contexts.
