About the Hartwell Visiting Fellows

Founded in 2018, the endowed teaching fellowship aligns with the value GFA places on the life of the mind as well as the application of knowledge that fuels science, arts, government, business, social enterprise, environmental responsibility and more. The program  allows us to bring distinguished speakers, innovative thinkings, and dynamic teachers to campus for extended periods of time to work with our PreK-12 students and enhance our already robust curriculum; deepens our Inquiry projects, providing a distinctive and distinguishing aspect of our current offerings; and elevates the profile of the school and enhances the student experience. 

GFA’s “Ask Lisa”: Bob Whelan & Dr. Lisa Damour


Supporting Our Children Through the Rituals and Routines of the Academic Year

Lisa Damour, Ph.D. Thurs, Sept. 15 @ 7 p.m. We are thrilled to be joined twice this year by New York Times bestselling author, CBS News contributor, and former GFA Coyle Scholar, Dr. Lisa Damour, Ph.D. As this year’s Hartwell Visiting Fellow, Dr. Damour will engage virtually with our parent community on September 15 and then spend a full day with us on campus on January 26. Her work and bestsellers Untangled and Under Pressure have provided practical guidance to girls and boys as well as to their parents, teachers, and advocates. Please mark your calendars for 7 p.m. both evenings to hear and learn from one of the country’s leading experts in child and adolescent development. Dr. Damour’s virtual visit on September 15th will focus on how we, as parents, can best support our kids as they return to the rituals and routines of the academic year. 

We are taking YOUR questions. Please submit your questions for Bob Whelan to pose to Dr. Damour during the webcast by clicking the button below and submitting a form. We ask that all questions be submitted by Wednesday, September 14 at noon.
