Adam Valenstein

Adam earned his B.A. (Philosophy), M.A. (Liberal Studies), and Ed.M. (Philosophy and Education) from Columbia University in New York City. He has been fortunate to work in education for his entire professional life—first as a teacher and now as an administrator.

Adam encountered Stoicism early in his undergraduate studies. However, it wasn’t until the birth of his first child that he became a serious student, both for the sake of self-betterment, i.e. virtuous living, and to model for his children a philosophical way of life.

To these ends, he completed the SES and Marcus Aurelius program. He loves teaching in the College; it allows him to help others on their journeys, learn from his interactions and conversations with students, and deepen his own understanding and practice of Stoicism..
