“06880” Podcast: Bob Whelan

Greens Farms Academy head of school Bob Whelan is one of the most fascinating people I know.

For example: Before he joined the independent school world, he was a rock star.


The other day, Bob and I sat in the Westport Library’s Trefz Forum. We chatted about teenagers, younger kids, college pressure, GFA’s place in the community and commitment to inclusivity, his famous “snow day” videos — and of course, rock ‘n’ roll.

Click below for our wide-ranging conversation. In the spirit of education, you’ll do what I did: learn a lot.
