Head of School's Message
Head of School's Message: April 15
Mr. Scibberas was my English teacher for the last two years of high school. Born in Malta, he had a high-pitched voice that is slightly characteristic of people from that Mediterranean island. He pronounced a few words in odd ways. ‘Obviously’ sounded like ‘Bobsleigh.’ Together with ‘Scibby,’ these were the nicknames we gave him, behind his back of course.
 
He was a demanding teacher. In a typical class we would pour over a chunk from a novel, poem or play. He would pace the room posing questions about the reading. Each question would require a written answer. We wrote paragraphs every day. If we didn’t support an argument in our pieces, he handed the work back. He had an excellent sense of humor and his kindness and fairness made him a beloved figure. No one wanted to disappoint him with shoddy work.
