Mark Summers

Teacher Profile:
I have had the pleasure of teaching fourth grade at Berwick Academy since 2001. Prior to that, I taught second and third grade in Berwick, Maine (MSAD #60) for sixteen years. I graduated from the University of Maine with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and I am passionate about teaching young children. I grew up in Massachusetts and had the opportunity to attend independent schools. I understand and appreciate the value of an independent school education and I enjoy sharing those values with my students and their parents. My wife and I live in Kittery, Maine and have two grown daughters. We tutor students during the summer and we love working in our garden, walking, biking, and enjoying all that the seacoast area has to offer.  
Berwick Academy, situated on an 80-acre campus just over one hour north of Boston, serves 600 students, Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12, from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. Deeply committed to its mission of promoting virtue and useful knowledge, Berwick Academy empowers students to be creative and bold. Berwick strives to graduate alumni who shape their own learning, take risks, ask thoughtful questions, and come to understand and celebrate their authentic selves. Founded in 1791 and rooted in a tradition of college preparation, our culture of innovation prepares students for a complex and dynamic world.
