Caroline Odden

Instructor and Chair; Tang Institute Fellow. Caroline Odden's Astronomy Research class discovered a rare binary asteroid in 2016.

I was inspired by my excellent high school teachers to pursue a career in teaching. I loved English, art, and math in high school, but fell in love with physics when I took my first course in college. I enjoy introducing physics with its many practical applications to Andover’s bright, motivated students. I received a B.A. degree from Yale University in 1997, where I majored in Physics and Philosophy and was a goaltender for the women’s ice hockey team. I began my teaching career at Westminster School in Connecticut immediately after graduating from college and have been teaching ever since. I now live in Stuart with my husband, two young daughters (Katie and Abby), and dog Mandy. In addition to teaching, I supervise the observatory, and I coach ice hockey and golf.
