Four seasons from “the best spot on campus”

The view from French teacher Jim Rees’ third-floor classroom in Centennial is clearly one of the more pleasant perks of his job. After twenty-plus years of gazing down on the Pomfret firmament—through the nuances of the changes of seasons and the coming and goings of its students, Jim recently was inspired to share his great fortune with the rest of the Pomfret community. “I thought I would take some shots from time to time as the year passed,” he says. “I always felt that this was one of the great spots on campus to view the quad.” The result is a wonderful documentation of the climate, foliage, and social journey through a Pomfret autumn, winter, spring and summer. “You can also see the Massachusetts border in the distance as fall progresses,” he says. “There was no method to the madness,” he adds; “just some fun capturing the campus through the year.”

And giving credit where credit is due, Jim also identified fellow documentarian and French teacher Tim Deary ‘05 as the Pomfret paparazzo who took one of the winter scenes. “It was,” he said admiringly, “a great perspective. “
