David Fox

Department Chair, English and Art History Instructor, Coach for Boys’ Swimming & Diving and Water Polo

After graduating from Bates College, I returned to my hometown, Tulsa, and began teaching at my alma mater, Booker T. Washington High School. In 1998, I left Booker T. to study at Harvard University, where I earned a master’s degree, helped teach courses, coached the water polo team, and served as a junior administrator, including as the assistant director of the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. I joined the English Department at Andover in 2004 and the Art Department, as Instructor in Art History, in 2009. In addition to teaching in these disciplines, I coach the boys’ varsity swimming and water polo teams, live in a dormitory, and serve as the Director of Studies. At Andover, I appreciate the respect and deference given to me as an educator--in the classroom, on the pool deck, in the dorm--coupled with the collaborative and collegial spirit of my colleagues, and I believe in the responsibility and freedom we grant students so that they can be who they are and grow into who they want to be.
