Teaching At BL:
Mr. Shriver loves earth science and confesses he is "in awe of the world and universe in which we live." He is also dedicated to working just as hard as he asks his students to. Mr. Shriver's classes are focused on instilling a love for learning in his students, because for him "Hard work and learning how to learn are skills that will carry students for the rest of their lives."
Mr. Shriver loves working at BL because of the culture of honesty and respect. He says, "We don't hide our warts nor those of our kids-it makes for a non-pretentious atmosphere where the individual is respected for who he is and not what he is. Truly living our motto Esse Quam Videri."

What's More:
Mr. Shriver has spoken at dozens of lacrosse clinics, both locally and in Australia. He served as chairman of the U.S. Lacrosse's MIAA committee from 1980-2013, and has been a member of the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association from its inception in 1995.
Mr. Shriver's son, David, was a 13-year BL student, class of '06. David was an exceptional student who won one of BL's highest honors, the Jack Williams' Award, during his senior year. Sadly, his son Bobby passed away in 2015 at the age of 30. Bobby was developmentally delayed as a child and, although he wasn't a student anymore, always enjoyed himself whenever he was on campus.
Mr. Shriver's interests outside BL include golf, travel and following the Orioles, Ravens, Maryland Basketball, and sports in general. His favorite movies are Casablanca and To Kill a Mockingbird.
