Nicole Chapin Duke, Director

Ms. Duke is excited to be in her ninth year with SPS, where she is now serving as the Director after stints as its Curriculum Coordinator and later its Associate Director.  During the academic year, Ms. Duke teaches high school history at St. Albans School, coaches field hockey at St. Albans' sister school (the National Cathedral School), and serves as a faculty advisor to the Government Club jointly sponsored by both schools.  She received her undergraduate degree from Yale University, where she majored in history and played varsity ice hockey, and her law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center. Before going to law school, she worked for a public relations and lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., that focused on work for political campaigns and nonprofit advocacy groups, and during her time in law school, she worked for the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives. In addition, right after law school, she worked as a law clerk for a federal trial judge in Washington, D.C.  After practicing law at Williams & Connolly, LLP, for a number of years, she made the leap to the education world to join SPS and could not be happier. Ms. Duke is also the mother of two children in their twenties, both of whom are proud SPS alums.

Nina Hazra, Program Coordinator

She also coaches basketball and lacrosse at St. Albans' sister school (the National Cathedral School). Nina graduated in May 2021 from Cornell University, where she majored in Chemistry and had minors in Mathematics, Spanish, and Law and Society.
