Corinne Dedini - Assistant Head of School, One Schoolhouse
Corinne Dedini believes three simple truths: children need to ask lots of questions, run around in the fresh air, and be safe enough to take risks. As a little girl on a farm, this resulted in regular episodes of being hosed off before being allowed in the house for dinner. By college, Corinne was a student of science and history, a runner and rower, a person of abiding faith, an advocate for the oppressed and a voice for the trees, a voracious reader, and a world traveler. She discovered her niche in life working with high school students, a journey that has taken her to independent schools in New Jersey, Arizona, Rhode Island, and Georgia. Corinne’s expertise in tech-supported curriculum design, learner-driven pedagogy, and co-curricular program development was cultivated through her years as a science teacher, academic dean, coach, and camp counselor. Today Corinne lives in California and works for One Schoolhouse, where she supports teaching and learning, motivates pedagogical growth, and facilitates professional development. Her work is predicated on the belief that today’s schools have a responsibility to prepare tomorrow’s workforce for a future we can only imagine.
