He’s been spotted leading Winch students through Central America and helping students build homes for those less fortunate. He has been known to jump on stage – or entertain anywhere even if no stage is available. He was an incredibly popular coach and beloved teacher and colleague.
Would you want this guy as your teacher?
…or this guy?
Perhaps not, but any student who has ever had him would say that “this guy”, Mr. D’Arcey, was one of their favorite teachers.
And Mr. D’Arcey has rejoined the ranks of the Winchendon Wapiti this fall.
Head of School Sean Duncan commented, “I am thrilled that a teacher and leader of Jared D’Arcey’s caliber has agreed to return to Winchendon. Jared has always set a high standard for making learning engaging and fun while knowing each of his students well. His return is another big win for Winchendon this fall.”
Mr. D’Arcey commented “I am very excited to return to The Winchendon School after teaching at Narragansett Regional High School and Leominster Center for Excellence (both exceptional schools). It has been great seeing familiar faces and catching up with friends around campus. I am thrilled to be teaching again in the great community of Winchendon.”
Jared, his wife Miranda, and their kids live in Winchendon. Miranda Jennings also taught at TWS and founded our Service Learning initiative. Miranda is now the Executive Director of the Winchendon CAC, the Program Director of Heal Winchendon, an active community leader – and a key partner of the School’s in our commitment to create service opportunities for our students in the community and the greater region.
Between Mr. Bolander, Mr. Carmona-Tangarife, and Mr. D’Arcey, there should be some fascinating and exiting adventures in the study of World Languages on Winch’s MA campus this year!
