Tyler FranceMiddle School Science
Tyler teaches 8th Grade Life Science, and is one of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) coordinators for the Middle School. He also coaches Girls’ Varsity Volleyball.
“My goal is to develop lifelong learners who achieve success in a classroom that encourages hands-on exploration through co-authorship, and mutual respect between teacher and student, while upholding the pursuit of excellence.”
Before coming to Park, Tyler was a Middle School Science teacher, DEI Coordinator, and athletic coach at Tuxedo Park School in New York. With the help of the faculty, families, and students, Tyler founded the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program at the school. He has experience working with constituent groups to create spaces that support individual members, while confronting issues that impede building a more inclusive community. In all of his teaching and coaching positions, Tyler makes it his top priority to ensure his students and families feel seen and empowered.
In the summers, Tyler runs a week-long summer camp that is centered around getting kids outside and growing their confidence and interpersonal relationship skills.
Tyler holds a B.S. in Natural Resource Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Massachusetts Initial Licensure in Middle School Science from Shady Hill Teacher Training Center (TTC), where he was a Grade K-VIII apprentice.
