Our Staff

Hebron teachers live the mission of the school in each interaction they have. Challenging, inspiring and guiding each student to reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit is at the heart of what Hebron teachers do each day. Hebron’s faculty, led by our academic principles, equip students to become effective communicators, adaptable learners, responsible global citizens, and poised to lead.

Sara Alt

Sara Alt
Music Faculty

Sara grew up in the woods of the Pocono Mountains in PA where she spent time singing, fishing, camping, and frolicking with animals... chickens, horses, goats, bunnies and even stray raccoons & black bear cubs (her cousin was a black bear biologist for the PA Game Commission, so this was part of a rehabilitation program... don't try this at home...) She had her first public solo at the age of two.

She has taught in public and private schools, directed summer arts programs, managed an organic maple farm, and worked in the financial arena, but loves teaching the most!

Ms. Alt - "S.Alt" as many of her students refer to her, has a passion for learning new things, tackling challenges creatively, and making music with all manner of instruments or voices. She studied primarily at Cairn University in Langhorne, PA with teachers: David Shockey, Sharon Sweet, and was mentored by soprano and composer Michelle Hynson in Milwaukee, WI. She has performed as a soprano section leader with the Bel Canto Chorus of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Symphony Chorus, Skylight Opera (WI), the New Amsterdam Singers (NY) & too many church & community choirs to count in the US and abroad.

If you know great places to hear live music, eat delicious food, or kayak/camp, please let her know. =)

Paul Brouwer

Paul Brouwer
Director of the Middle School; Outdoor Education
I grew up in upstate New York but has called Maine home since the mid 1990s. After graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree from State University College in Potsdam's Crane School of Music, I worked as a professional musician in the Boston area for many years. Upon moving to Maine, I began teaching in the Turner school district. I joined the Hebron community in the fall of 1998, teaching math, music and outdoor skills. In 2002, I became the Director of Trailblazers, Hebron's outdoor skills program, and in 2006 was named Hebron's Middle School Director.
 
My favorite Hebron memory is actually two memories and those are when my two daughters graduated from Hebron, one in 2015 and the other in 2018. I am super proud of both of them.

A fun fact about me is that I played in a band called, “Gigolo Aunts” in the Boston area before becoming a teacher.

I enjoy the sense of community that living on campus provides, and he actively pursues Maine's many outdoor offerings year-round.
