About the Founder

Steve

Stephen Hussey graduated from Bates College in 1978 with a degree in History. In 1986 he was selected as the science teacher at Linden Hill School in Northfield and moved there with his family. Linden Hill is a school for dyslexic boys, with a renowned program for improving students’ language skills. While at Linden Hill, Steve developed a curriculum and a methodology that made basic scientific principles comprehensible and taught students to work “scientifically” on their own. In 1996, he took a position at the Bement School in Deerfield teaching fifth grade. His experiences at these two diverse schools were integral to the development of the program now offered at Four Winds School, which he founded in 2000. Steve retired from teaching at Four Winds in 2015.
