Andrew‘s first introduction to boarding schools was when he began his high school experience at The Groton School. These transformative four years shaped Andrew‘s life and immediately after graduation from Hobart College, he started his career in independent schools as an English teacher at Cushing Academy.
Before Gould, Andrew spent nine years at Berwick Academy serving as their Director of Admission and Financial Aid. During his time at Berwick, Andrew was part of the English department, coached lacrosse and hockey, was a member of the school’s diversity initiatives, and named Co-Chair of BA’s NEASC Self-Study team, and appointed the advisor for the class of 2013.
Professionally, he has attended numerous conferences about diversity and inclusivity, received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to study the work of John Steinbeck and asked to share his findings at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) conference. Andrew has also presented at NAIS’s SSS and SSATB’s national conferences. In 2009, he was accepted to the Klingenstein Summer Institute.
In 2010, Andrew completed a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership at Columbia University. At Columbia, Andrew worked with Harlem Academy’s Admission Office developing new methods of applicant assessment based on research conducted at UPenn, Stanford, and Columbia’s schools of education. In collaboration with others, Andrew crafted a new admissions policy for Harlem Academy that placed a greater value on noncognitive skills such as character, family partnership, resilience, and desire to learn over the traditional indicators of academic success.

Outside the Gould community, Ms. Andreozzi is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Maine Women’s Fund and is an active volunteer for a program in Guatemala called Safe Passage. She lives on campus and has four children (and a son-in-law and daughter-in-law): Jessica, Sarah, Rocky and Samantha. Her family has grown with the arrival of her grandsons, Dusty and Jackson. She loves Maine winters and is passionate about doing everything and anything outdoors.

She is a dedicated wife to her husband Luke and mother of four children: Brooke ’16, Ryan ’19, Ben, and Kira.
