Leading Ladies 2020: Veronica Jutras

Admissions Director

Posted

Education and community were at the heart of Veronica Jutras’ childhood, and have been a part of her core ever since. “My father was Recreation Director of a town for thirty years, and my mother was a teacher. I’ve always been purpose-driven,” says Veronica.

As Admissions Director at the GORDON SCHOOL, Veronica gets to know families well and helps them understand the school’s approach. “It’s a place that offers an extraordinary child-centered progressive education and builds and holds community with tremendous intentionality.”

Having taught at each grade level (nursery through 8th grade) and having overseen Gordon’s Athletics and Wellness Department, Veronica has a unique ability to communicate about curriculum, cross- divisional and interdisciplinary work, as well school life in comprehensive and even personal ways. She’s proud to be an out gay faculty member, adding that “it’s essential that students and families bring their whole selves into the community and not feel as though they need to hide any aspect of their identity.”

“It’s an honor to be the person who continues to help Gordon build its extraordinary community.”
