January 9, 2018

Name: Andee Alford

High School: Sacred Heart Academy (Hamden, CT)

College/Grad School: AB: (Yes, it really is an AB, not a BA) Princeton University (Math) MA SUNY Stony Brook (Math)

Gathering firewood on Junior Four Point

What are your roles at Gould? I am (like all) an advisor and teacher, and also the Math Department Chair and the girl’s JV tennis coach. I alternate between Sophomore and Junior Four Point and hope to get to do Freshmen Four Point again someday.

Proudest Achievement: Being the parent of two awesome kids

Last book I read: Origins by Dan Brown

My soundtrack is: Celtic folk – I have a Celtic soul

Movie I would recommend: There are so many, but if you haven’t seen Singing in the Rain, that is probably where I would start.

Favorite food: Mashed Potatoes and really good chocolate cake (not necessarily together)

One word that describes me: Friendly (which my son tells me is NOT a college essay approved word)

Best advice I ever received: Start putting money into your retirement account as soon as you can.

Why Gould?
I came because they were the first ones to offer me a job, and I stayed because I met the most wonderful man in the world here. It is a beautiful place to live and I love the community.

What’s the last thing you crossed off your bucket list?
I don’t really have a bucket list, but six years ago we spent the year in Spain and that was pretty awesome.

What are your interests/hobbies? Reading, baking, kayaking, hiking, spending time with my family.

What is your spirit animal? Panda Bear
