Alethea Dunham-Carson, Assistant Head of School for Teaching & Learning

March 2022


“My career path has taken me to a variety of educational settings, but my interest has remained consistent: to find ways to increase equity and access in education, allowing all students to have high-quality, engaging, and joyful school experiences,” says Alethea Dunham-Carson, new Assistant Head of School for Teaching and Learning at the Gordon School. “I was excited to come to Gordon because of its authenticity and clarity of vision. The effort to cultivate community, creativity, and human dignity runs through everything we do.”

In her role Alethea makes a direct connection between the school’s mission and the classroom experience. This year that includes leading the Study on Belonging, an initiative assessing Gordon’s diversity, inclusion and equity work that will help inform the next steps in the school’s growth and evolution.

Alethea is passionate about understanding the experiences of and partnering with different groups at Gordon—students, families, faculty, staff and leadership. “I am a firm believer in the power of schools to positively transform the lives of the children, families, and communities that they serve.”
