Micah Margolies, MS/US English, MS Math, US Theater


“My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?” 

The quote above is from a book I love, Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell. I think about it often, as it epitomizes so much of the way I view teaching and the world. We each are one small person in the world--but together, we can accomplish so much, and we can create something as vast and wondrous as the ocean. 

I love reading, math, writing, theater, and basketball. I have a preposterous passion for Harry Potter and Hamilton. I love to teach, and I love to learn. I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education and earned my Master of Science in Education also from the University of Kansas. I am a proud Jayhawk. I also attended HBHA from kindergarten all the way through my graduation in 2008 and am thrilled to be back teaching at the school that has played such a significant role in my life. I am an even prouder Ram.

My goal as a teacher is to instill students with a love of reading and writing and to inspire them to be active citizens who question the world around them and engage in meaningful, lifelong learning.
