Teaching At BL:
A career educator, having started nearly twenty-five years ago at Boys' Latin as an intern, Headmaster Post has had the privilege of witnessing lives change, seeing "good boys grow to be great men."
The wide-eyed enthusiasm of new lower school students on the first day of school. The look of determination on the faces of middle school boys as they conquer fears and learn more about themselves. The indelible "ah ha!" moments when upper schoolers applying a concept they've learned in class to real world situations. The inevitable emergence of school leaders in every senior class.
None of these transformations would happen without a faculty that he says "is second to none." "Both experts in their respective fields and experts in teaching boys, our Boys' Latin faculty continue to amaze. Every single one of them is constantly finding ways to enrich their class, engage their students, and build connections. They put in long hours to get to know each boy and, through that personal experience, help him to discover his talents and strive to be his very best. The best part is that our teachers model what it means to be lifelong learners."
The headmaster is married to Amie, the executive and clinical director of the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore and an adjunct professor at Towson University. They have three children: daughters Allie and Mollie, and one son, Matt, who is an upper schooler at Boys' Latin. They also have two dogs, Henry and Nellie, that you might spot on campus hunting for errant tennis or lacrosse balls, or a leftover snack.
Among his favorite books, Headmaster Post counts A Separate Peace by John Knowles and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Movies? The Godfather, but only the first and second. Third, not so much.
