Cory Potash TEACHER


​​​​​​I went to an alternative high school similar to New Vista and I am a believer in alternative forms of education. I love the emphasis on experience, relationship, personal responsibility, and creativity. I also like that I can really get to know each student and find out what is meaningful to them and what excites them. It makes teaching and learning so much more fun and interesting.  I started teaching at New Vista in 2007.


​I am particularly interested in how teaching marimba allows an evening of the playing field amongst the students regardless of academic record, learning styles, or other social/emotional challenges. It provides an opportunity for students to discover new strengths and new challenges about themselves. Additionally, it has proved to be an awesome vehicle for team building.
