Maggie Christinat-Crain joined the admission team in 2011, although she has been working at Hotchkiss since 2005 in the Study Skills Office. Before coming to Hotchkiss, she taught eighth- and ninth-grade English, coached varsity basketball, and ran the drama program at The Indian Mountain School in Lakeville, CT. Her love of independent schools began when she was working at the Katherine Delmar Burke School for Girls in San Francisco. In addition to working most of her adult life in education, she spent two years in the corporate world as an assistant buyer for Gap headquarters in San Francisco. She holds a Master’s in English from Middlebury College. Along with working in the Admission Office, Ms. Christinat-Crain also advises, and lives off campus with her husband, Roger Crain, and their three children. Ms. Christinat-Crain is an avid Bearcats fan and loves to take walks, but “I mostly enjoy seeing my three children being raised in an environment of strong community, intellectual curiosity, and great role models. Often my husband, who was raised at Hotchkiss, will reminisce about his wonderful childhood with other adult faculty kids. It is a blessing to be raising another generation of Crains at Hotchkiss.” Coaching profile: Maggie Crain came to Hotchkiss in Fall 2005 from The Indian Mountain School, where she taught English, coached varsity basketball, and was Assistant Dean of Students. She started as a part-time member of the Study Skills Office so she could spend more time at home with her then-small children, and is now happy to be full-time and back to coaching two seasons. Mrs. Crain is now an Associate Director of Admission and has been with Admission for the past four years. A local, Mrs. Crain was on Varsity Field Hockey in high school, was voted captain her junior and senior years, and as a goalie was First Team All-League her senior year and Honorable Mention All-State. This is her first year head coaching JV. She was previously the head coach of Thirds Field Hockey. Mrs. Crain looks forward to taking over such a reputable team and having continued success within such a strong program. Mrs. Crain and her husband Roger '86 live on campus with their three children.
