History Department Chair, Math
A beloved veteran teacher at Berkshire Country Day School, Ned practices the Socratic teaching method, eliciting knowledge from his middle and upper school students. He likes to see a student’s smile when he or she gets the problem or sees the relationship of an idea. His students say he is “funny, demanding, and fair.” “He challenges me to be a better student.” “I have to work extremely hard in his class, and I love it!” “Mr. Douglas makes learning fun!” Ned can frequently be found on walks around campus and throughout Lenox (often with his dog, Teddy), where he lives with his wife.
