Martha Lee Thwaite ’80

Second-Grade Lead Teacher
Pace Academy Alumna

As a Pace alumna and now a second-grade teacher, Martha Lee Thwaite appreciates Pace for the close, dedicated relationships between faculty and students, the value of striving for excellence and the priority of academic understanding. During her Pace days, Thwaite recalls her teachers’ “willingness to put students first and show genuine care and support.”

Accelerate Pace will bring to the Lower School “up-to-date learning spaces that complement our programs,” she says. “STEAM and Design Thinking, the arts, the gymnasium—all need adequate space so that our students can be creative and experience learning.” Especially important to Martha Lee is “Pace’s commitment to maintaining our current enrollment, even with expanded facilities.”
