Bio – data

Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Daryl Hitchcock travelled across the country to study History and Classics (and to play tennis) at the University of Southern Maine.  Early on, he wasn’t sure whether sport or study was more important, but reality settled in and he began a career of teaching and working in boarding schools both in New England and Switzerland that has spanned nearly 25 years. Currently the Theory of Knowledge Department Head and a Resident Scholar at the Leysin American School, Daryl has found that a boarding school setting perfectly combines his passion for teaching and learning with his interest in fostering a rich residential life for students.  His academic interests have been focused around the teaching of History, Geography, and in particular Theory of Knowledge. His residential interests center around ways to elevate the residential side of school life to an equal footing with the academic part of the school day. Having spent his career among communities of international students and teachers, he treats each school day as a model UN experience. From the classroom to the dining hall and from the gym to the dorm he sees opportunities for learning and growth in essentially everything we do.
