Kelly Slonaker

Canterbury welcomes five new faculty for the 2019-20 school year, including two alumni (welcome back!). Spanning several different academic and administrative departments, all new faculty members will live and work on campus and most will coach a sport or serve in one of our after school programs. Head over to our Faculty and Staff page to read more about these exciting new additions to our community.

Colleen Cook '02 returns to Canterbury as the Director of Health Services after spending several years working as a nurse in the organ transplant unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. After graduating from Canterbury, Colleen went on to obtain her BSN from Villanova University, and her MBA from Temple University. She lives on campus with her mini-labradoodle, Charlie, and is actively involved with two organizations based in Togo: Wish Them Well and El-Fazien orphanage. 

Stephen Hewston is a member of the History department, Faculty Advisor for Model UN, and dorm parent at Hickory Hearth.

He earned his bachelor’s in history education at Nichols College in Dudley, MA and is in the process of obtaining his master’s in history from Central Connecticut State University. Stephen lives on campus and is passionate about fishing, hiking, and the outdoors.

Raheem Logan '12 joins the faculty in the Theology department and the office of Student Life, and will also serve as head coach for Boys’ Varsity Squash and assistant coach for Track. After graduating from Canterbury, Raheem attended Wesleyan University and earned his bachelor’s in sociology.

Zach Lord brings two years of teaching experience at Rumsey Hall School—and native fluency—to our Language department as the French I, II and III teacher, and will also coach Varsity Football, Boys’ JV Basketball, and Boys’ Varsity Tennis. A graduate of McGill University, Zach has coached football at the college level and likes to stay active by hiking and scaling peaks throughout the US. He lives with his wife, English teacher Maddie Lord, in Sheehan Dorm.

Amy Milano is the Assistant Director of Academic Counseling and Testing Coordinator, as well as a dorm parent in Duffy House. She received her M.S. in Education from the University of New Haven and comes to Canterbury with four years of teaching experience in Kindergarten, first and second grade in Torrington and Falls Village, CT.
