Anne Hunter, a 2008 graduate of the Friends School Teacher Preparation Program, is a licensed elementary educator who teaches enrichment in an arts integration setting to students in grades 1-5 at Boulder Community School of Integrated Studies in the Boulder Valley School District. Anne has recently become a member of the Talented and Gifted District Advisory Committee. She has created and continues to teach the Human Development curriculum for 4th and 5th grades at Friends School. Anne also teaches Physical Development and Cognitive Development to the teacher candidates in the TPP.
Anne and her family moved to Boulder from Long Island in 2005, and she is the proud parent of two children, one of whom is a Friends School alumnus in the class of 2008. Prior to living in Colorado, Anne completed her training in Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Medicine at SUNY Stony Brook where she received the Robert L. Barbieri, M.D Research Award and the David Marzouk, M.D. Humanism in Medicine Award. Anne earned her M.D. degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and her B.A. in modern dance from Bennington College.
During college, Anne studied and worked in France for a year, teaching in a bilingual preschool. This experience led her to the conscious realization of the richness inherent in any different perspective — cultural, linguistic, economic, experiential, or simply individual. Anne strives to embody this awareness, especially in teaching and learning. Passionate about the arts, science and math, stewardship of the earth, and gifted and twice-exceptional education, Anne also enjoys being anywhere outdoors from ocean to mountains, especially hiking and biking with her family.
