Dr. Jeff Walkington has been devoted to education for more than 34 years, during which he served as both educator and administrator in U.S. independent and public schools. He was the Assistant Headmaster and founding Upper School Head at Cannon School in Charlotte. He also served as the Vice President at the nationally known Latin School of Chicago. After that, he worked as the Director of the University of Illinois Laboratory High School and then led Columbia Independent School as the School Head. His philosophy of education can be simplified as: ‘upholding a balance of challenge and nurture.’
