Joshua Novick
Director of Residence Life/ English
(since 2009)
Email: jnovick@southwesternacademy.edu




Birthplace: New Jersey

College Degree: Master of Arts in British and American Literature, New York University

Classes taught: English

Something you might not know: I am a fan of mid-twentieth century hard-boiled detective fiction.

Interests other than teaching: Learning.

I like teaching at Southwestern because: I get the chance to get to know my students well and make a substantial difference in their lives. (And the magnificent desert scenery I see every day at the Beaver Creek Ranch!)

Favorite quote: “Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.” -Basil King

My teaching philosophy: As a teacher, I work to cultivate an environment in which students can learn both inside and outside of the classroom. I do this by modeling the approach of the scholar, sharing myself with my students, and motivating them with a love for learning. And despite all my efforts, I walk out of class each day feeling I have learned more from my students than they have from me. Teaching keeps me humble.
