About Chaffee

Chaffee is a humanities teacher at Boston’s Codman Academy where she tries to create lessons that demonstrate how education can be transformative.

"Education must be authentic. There is no use in studying history if we believe it to be static and irrelevant to the future. Authentic learning enables students to see and create connections in the world around them,” said Chaffee.

She is the coordinator of a school-wide Community Circle every Thursday where all students in the school come together to celebrate successes, share good news and dig into serious conversations together.
