Quote from teacher: “I have been privileged to know and teach Dylan for the past four years,” said Jill Posta, Upper School mathematics teacher and department head. “What I like best about him is the fact that he is a fantastic problem-solver whose possibilities are endless. As his math teacher last year, I could always count on Dylan to go out on a limb to willingly solve questions he had never seen before. He has a genuine array of interests like none other: flying planes, community service including a trip to Jamaica, performing on stage (both acting and singing), knitting, and audio/video production.”
