Meet Our Faculty and Staff
Rowland Hall’s teachers are united in their efforts to teach the content, culture, and character that today’s students will need to succeed in college and the workplace. Additionally, three quarters of our teachers have earned or are pursuing graduate degrees and are highly qualified with an average of 17 years teaching experience in the classroom.
Rowland Hall’s financial commitment to professional development is unparalleled among its peer Utah schools. In addition to their commitments as teachers, advisors, mentors, and coaches, our faculty members take time to keep current on the latest learning research, teaching techniques, curriculum development, and technological trends.
Our teachers’ backgrounds and interests vary widely. In fact, many are transplants to Utah who were educated in colleges and universities nationally, and even internationally. Our students’ horizons are broadened when these multifaceted role models share lessons learned from their personal pursuits, whether in the arts, literature, recreation, or travel.
Above all, Rowland Hall students perceive teachers as creating a caring, well-structured learning environment in which academic risk is encouraged and expectations are high, clear, and challenging.
A New England transplant, Coral Azarian first joined the Rowland Hall community in July of 2011 in the Development Office. The following summer she left to pursue her M.Ed. in the department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Utah before returning to Rowland Hall in the summer of 2015 as the Director of Financial Aid/Associate Director of College Counseling. She is currently serving as the associate director of College Counseling, the adviser for the Upper School Student Council, and a first-year experience instructor. She is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling, and the Association of College Counselors in Independent Schools and annually presents at national and regional conferences. Prior to rejoining the Rowland Hall community in 2015 she worked at Westminster College as the coordinator for student involvement, leadership and orientation, as well as an admissions counselor at both Providence College and her alma mater, Stonehill College, where she graduated with a B.A. in history in 2009. She grew up on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and loves heading back to the East Coast any chance she gets to visit family and friends.
