New Teacher Feature #5: Mr. Shane Dowell
Mr. Dowell grew up in Seattle, Washington and attended Lakeside School.
He received his Bachelor of Arts in great books from Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, CA and his Master of Arts in Philosophy from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In addition to his interests in Socrates, Aquinas and liturgical studies, Mr. Dowell and his wife have for the past five years run a Community Supported Agriculture farm specializing in vegetables and goat cheese.
Quote: “Farming has taught me discipline and perseverance and given me and my family a wealth of life experience, but I am also looking forward to returning the cultivation of the life of the mind and inspiring young people to pursue a life of wonder and wisdom.”
Welcome, Mr. Dowell!
