Faculty & Staff Spotlight

Susan Ellis played for UNC's legendary women's soccer team for four seasons and won four national championships, an impressive accomplishment that becomes downright jaw-dropping when you discover Ellis didn't set foot on a soccer field until her senior year in high school.
Baseball and music were James Bohanek's loves when he was growing up in Staten Island, New York. He was a fixture on the baseball diamond from Little League to midway through high school. He played the piano from age 7, and his schoolmates knew him as a musician. But all of that changed when he discovered theater.
Jessica Soler doesn't shy away from change. She thrives on it. "I find change exciting. I like to try different things."
A moral, happy and productive life is Durham Academy's goal for all students — it's part of the school's mission statement — and kindergarten teacher Janet Hampton thinks happy belongs at the top of the list. She believes children need to be happy to learn and that they learn better when they are happy.
When Tim McKenna's basketball teams break at the end of practice or after a game, the players and coaches always say "family." Developing a sense of family is what it's all about for McKenna, whose 188 victories make him the winning-est coach in Durham Academy varsity boys basketball history.
