Colin Hull (History) and Hannah Wetmore (Spanish) to Join SBA Staff

Over the past six weeks, we reviewed over 100 resumes for our History and Spanish positions and hosted a number of finalists to our campus. We are excited to welcome Colin Hull as SBA's newest History teacher and Hannah Wetmore as our newest Spanish teacher. 

History Teacher - Colin Hull

While Colin hails originally from the Boston area, he has lived most recently in Idaho, western North Carolina, and Maine. He graduated with a B.A. in history from Colby College, where he led outdoor trips for the outing club and the orientation program and studied abroad in Spain. After college, he worked for an outdoor leadership program called Adventure Treks, where he led 25 to 30-day expeditions in Alaska, Washington, Colorado, and western North Carolina that were focused on backpacking and mountaineering. For the past two-and-a-half years, he has been teaching high school history and Spanish courses for the Alzar school in the mountains of Idaho. Beyond regular academic classes, the Alzar School focused on whitewater kayaking expeditions and cultural exchange in Idaho and Chilean Patagonia. Colin is excited to teach within the history department and join the residential life team. He enjoys whitewater kayaking, skiing, trail running, and getting lost in foreign countries. Colin looks forward to relocating to the Tahoe area and joining the Sugar Bowl community for the next academic year.

SBA is growing the Spanish curriculum and is planning on offering an AP Spanish course next year. To accommodate the growing enrollment and growing needs within our Spanish curriculum, SBA hired a new full-time teacher, Hannah Wetmore. Hannah grew up in Woodstock, Vermont.  Her first memories are of skiing the slopes of Killington with her three siblings and ski-instructor-mom. Hannah has lived in Costa Rica, Chile, and Peru. She graduated from St. Lawrence University with a B.A. in Hispanic Studies. Hannah has been fortunate to spend her career teaching at three independent schools in New England; The Chestnut Hill School, Friends Academy and Beaver Country Day School. She has spent summers leading young adults on Putney Student Travel trips, combining her love for Spanish, teaching, adventure and travel. When not teaching, Hannah spends her time petting dogs and exploring the outdoors.
