Hi there

Hi!  My name is Andrew Bauld, and I'm a first year Senior Harbor Educator this summer at Save the Harbor.  I've been lucky enough to spend most of life near a body of water.  I'm from the great state of New Hampshire and grew up on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, NH.  My love of the sea began at early age when I performed as the "Sea Urchin" in a second grade play about marine life.  Ever since I've been hooked.  In between, I've had many watery adventures, from sailing aboard a 137' schooner, to deep sea tuna fishing Oceanographer's Canyon, to spearfishing in the Bahamas.

Since graduating from Tufts University in 2007 with a degree in English, I've taught 5th and 6th grades at an elementary school in Massachusetts.  I love working with kids and getting to share with them my passions, ranging from 20th century literature to the Boston Red Sox to the history of the New England whaling industry.  I've also coached school basketball and tennis teams, and served as an advisor for student government.    

In my spare time I enjoy running, golfing and playing tennis, reading, cooking, and fishing (of course).   This summer I'm most excited to get to spend my days at some of the most beautiful places in Boston and explore them with some great kids and coworkers! 

Cheers to the start of a great summer on the harbor!
