Carly Schewe, Dorm parent and Adventure Teacher, graduated from the University of New Hampshire with dual degrees in Outdoor Education and Spanish. Carly started working with kids when she was in high school and has continued to do so in various different settings, ranging from before and after school care, to summer camp programs and adventure-based programs. Throughout these experiences, she particularly enjoyed mentoring and building relationships with all of the kids she worked with, which fostered her interest in being a dorm parent at Oliverian. This role allows her to get to know students on a more personal level, outside of a traditional structured schedule.
In her free time, Carly enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking or paddling. Having time with friends and family is also very important to her.
What do you love most about Oliverian?
I love the community that Oliverian provides. For staff and students alike, we work together as a big team and family. I also really appreciate the focus Oliverian puts on building relationships. I love that I’m able to be a support for the students while also being a friend and role model.
What motivates you to work with kids?
I enjoy working with teens because I know how impactful and difficult these years can be at times. I hope to be able to support and encourage these teenagers throughout this point in their lives. When working with teenagers, I often find myself thinking back to my teenage years and some of the struggles I faced, which I use as a way to help guide them.
