Mr. Newell grew up on campus as the son of Mr. Charlie Newell, the legendary Gould teacher, coach, and dorm head. Now as a faculty member (and 1988 Gould grad), he has a knack for finding the story in any historic moment and making that story come alive for his students. Before Gould, he taught at Telstar High School, the regional high school here in Bethel, where he was named “Teacher of the Year” by their student council in 2002, 2003, and 2004. Mr. Newell served as the Athletic Director and English/History teacher at Kents Hill School for eight years, where he was honored with Boy’s Basketball Coach of the Year” in 2000 by the Central Maine Newspapers. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, sports collectibles, and playing the harmonica. Mr. Newell lives off campus with his wife, Lynn, a local primary school educator, and their two daughters, Caroline ’20 and Emma.
