The Haverford School is pleased to announce that Patrick Andrén, who currently serves as Head of the Upper School at St. Mark’s School of Texas, will succeed Matt Green as Head of Upper School; and Pam Greenblatt, Ed.D., who for the past three years has been the Director of the Enrichment and Learning Center at the Haverford School, will succeed Ron Duska, Ed.D., as Head of Lower School. Both positions will be effective July 1.
Andrén’s administrative and teaching experience includes Dean of Academics at Pomfret School, Director of College Counseling at Marianapolis Preparatory School, and history teacher at Brunswick School. He earned an M.A. from Columbia University and an A.B. from Lafayette College. Andrén
attended the all-boys Brunswick School from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, graduating in 1993. It was in this single-sex environment that Andrén says he had many opportunities to develop his passions, have his assumptions challenged, and stretch himself. The Brunswick School motto, “Courage, Honor, Truth,” was a living part of his school experience and continues to have a lasting impact on his life and his philosophy as an educator. Andrén strongly believes that the single-sex model is powerful in developing well-rounded, ethical young men – a vision that is shared at The Haverford School.
Greenblatt joined The Haverford School in 2014 after working in several capacities at AIM Academy, most recently as Director of Curriculum and Instruction. She began her AIM Academy career as Director of the Speech and Language Department, working to develop an integrated curriculum tailored for students with language-based learning disabilities. She also helped design a professional development series linking AIM faculty to experts in the fields of reading, math, writing, and science, as well as a master’s-level teacher residency model in partnership with the Special Education degree program at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
Greenblatt holds a doctorate in Educational and Organizational Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in Speech and Language Pathology from The George Washington University, and a double bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Speech and Hearing Science from The
George Washington University.
