Laura Appell-Warren, Director of Global Citizenship at St. Mark’s School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in anthropology education.

With St. Mark’s School, a premier private school in Southborough, Massachusetts, Dr. Appell-Warren has excelled as an instructor since 2007 and Director of Global Citizenship since 2012. In this capacity, she teaches an advanced class in a cultural anthropology class for juniors and seniors called Advanced Studies in Global Citizenship. In addition, she teaches a freshman class called The Global Seminar which looks at the forces of globalization over the last 150 years.

Previously, Dr. Appell-Warren had provided superior education as a house head and teacher from 1983 to 2007 with Milton Academy, a coeducational, independent preparatory, boarding, and day school in Milton, Massachusetts. She is a board member of the Firebird Foundation for Anthropological Research; GEBG/Global Educators Benchmark Group; the Chewonki Foundation, a school, camp, and environmental education organization based in Wiscasset, Maine; Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust; and a member of the American Anthropological Association. She obtained a Doctorate of Education in anthropology and psychology from Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2007.

Dr. Appell-Warren attributes her success to hard work, passion for her work, and being in the right place at the right time. She became involved in her profession because she was inspired by her parents who were also anthropologists and spent five years living with them in a small isolated community in Borneo, a time she characterizes as key to her development. Dr. Appell-Warren considers her most notable achievement being on the board of the international organization called the Global Educating Benchmark Group.
