Laurie Kahn has been a high school teacher and administrator for more than twenty years and is very pleased to have joined the Maybeck community as registrar. Born, raised, and educated in the deep South, she soon migrated to New England where she completed her masters' degree and went on to teach English and head a girls’ dormitory at Phillips Exeter Academy. Having lived and worked in Berkeley for many years now with her architect husband and three children, she likes to think she is almost a native. Before coming to Maybeck she worked at Bentley School and read applications for the admissions department at UC Berkeley.

Outside of school, Laurie is a devoted soccer mom and is sure she has driven to every soccer field in Northern California. She is a community volunteer with the Berkeley Friends of the Library and at Berkeley High School. She and her family enjoy traveling to Yosemite and other beautiful places in California as well as to Hawaii – and, on occasion, back to Alabama.

For fun, Laurie loves gardening, swing-dancing, hiking, reading, crossword puzzles, and playing Pictionary, and she is a dedicated novice at watercolor painting.
