Head Coach: David Woo
David Woo, who graduated from Harvard cum laude and formerly taught at Phillips Exeter Academy and Northwood School, teaches math and coaches the girls’ varsity tennis and the girls' JV soccer teams. His favorite Winterim program is Mind Stretch. At Exeter, he was the faculty advisor to the Asian Student Society. David’s side interests include soccer (he plays in a local men’s league), downhill skiing, and the Asian board game Go. It isn’t unusual for him to take students with him to soccer practices or the nearby ski slopes. Mr. Woo says his most formative, somewhat recent professional development work was a three-week National Science Foundation-funded conference at Boston College aimed at implementing discrete mathematics into the high school curriculum. Many of the ideas, he says, have already been used in LA’s Math 4 curriculum. The 2006 recipient of the Departmental Chair for Excellence in Teaching, David lives off campus with his wife Laurie, a reference librarian, and their children Chris and Katie ’08.
