Faculty & Staff Spotlight

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.
Texas-born and -bred Jeff Boyd envisioned a life in health care, and that's where he was headed. His path to teaching and to Durham Academy was anything but straight, but a series of "six degrees of separation" connections make it seem like Boyd was destined to be here.
Constanza de Radcliffe grew up in Bogotá, Colombia, speaking Spanish with her parents and younger sister. From age 4 to 18 she attended a nearby French school where all her subjects were taught in French. But she never took classes in English until she got to Davidson College, a top-10 U.S. liberal arts college, where she graduated with a degree in comparative literature.
If you think a music teacher must have grown up immersed in music — taking piano or violin lessons before starting first grade, having a mom or dad who was a musician or music buff — you'd best think again if the music teacher is Luke Hoffman.
