Meet the New Faculty

in Features by

Lidia Zamora:

  1. Where did you go to college/what is your degree? Oglethorpe University in Brookhaven, Ga. And a B.S. in Biology.
  2. What made you want to work at Wesleyan? After I interviewed, I wanted to work at Wesleyan because. . . It is the best place to work, I met incredible people, we can worship and talk about God here, I like green and gold, I love biology and environmental science, and the teaching position available was for those courses, It is close to home and It was an answer to a prayer.
  3. What are three things you can’t live without? God, a planner, and coffee.
  4. If your life were a movie, what actor would you cast as yourself? My life would not be a movie. It would be a book because some things can’t be captured in movies. Words are more powerful and descriptive. If my life were a book, I would like F. Scott Fitzgerald or King Solomon to write that book.
  5. What is something you wish you had done in high school?
  6. If you weren’t a teacher, what would you do? Be a student. I love to learn.
  7. Where is the coolest place you have ever traveled? Charleston, SC. It was my honeymoon destination. Also, Charleston is beautiful and historic. It’s like traveling back in time with a lot of color.

Freshman Retreat: The Start to a Great School Year

in Features by

As a Wesleyan tradition, before the start of the school year, the freshman class travels to Carolina Point, North Carolina to get to know their peer leaders and new classmates coming to Wesleyan. This year 26 peer parents, along with high school teachers, traveled with the biggest freshman class to help them make friends while also assuring them that the next four years at Wesleyan will be fun and exciting.

Some of the fun activities the class of 2022 and their peer parents got to do were paddle boarding, go carting, basketball and a big crowd favorite, field day. Freshman Gabby Oakes said, “My favorite thing on the Freshman Retreat was our grade wide shaving cream fight.” In addition to the grade wide activities, peer parents and peer kids enjoyed spending personal time with each other to talk and play games.

Matt Cole

During his 20 years at Wesleyan Matt Cole has served in several positions. He has taught AP European History, eighth grade history, twelfth grade government, standard world history and public speaking. Now in his final year at Wesleyan, he is the Executive Head of School and a senior college advisor. Cole has been an integral part of the Wesleyan community and has had such an monumental impact on the students he has taught through the years. Anyone who knows Cole can attest to the fact that he has a brilliant sense of humor and always has a smile on his face. He is capable of changing the atmosphere of an entire room just by entering it and he has an uncontainable love for students. When asked what he will miss the most about Wesleyan, Mr. Cole said, “ Students by far- they are honest and smart and most of them have common sense.” He has made an indelible mark on this school and has the gratitude and respect of his fellow colleagues and students. Senior Daniel Baisier said, “Mr. Cole is genuinely one of the nicest people I know. I got to know Mr. Cole in the summer of 2016 when I had the opportunity to travel with him, Clay Tyler, and Zach Green to FSU for a research project with a professor that he had met. Not only did I enjoy the nerdiness of the experience, but I got to know him for the funny, frank, and interesting man he is. Since then, he’s helped me navigate the world of college admissions and guided me through the arduous process of writing college essays. Throughout it all, I always knew that I was talking to someone who genuinely cared about me and wasn’t afraid to give me the honest truth.”
