Meet our New Faculty Members, The Babbs

As we near the start of the school year, Linsly is excited to introduce some new faces to campus.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. and Mrs. Babb. The Babbs come to Linsly from Tacoma, Washington, where they were faculty members at the Annie Wright Schools. Previously they worked at Darlington School in Rome, Georgia.

Dr. Chris Babb will teach AP Chemistry, AP Biology, and Environmental Science. Dr. Babb earned his PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of Hawaii and his BS in biochemistry from California Polytechnic State University. Additionally, he will work with our new chemistry teacher, Dr. Link, to form the school’s first robotics club.

Mrs. Jill Babb also brings a wealth of experience to our boarding program, where she will be the Associate Director of Residential Life. She has over 20 years of experience in residential settings in summer camps and boarding schools. Dr. and Mrs. Babb will reside on campus in Merriman Hall where they will serve as dorm heads. They are big Jimmy Buffett fans and in their free time, Dr. Babb enjoys fishing and Mrs. Babb loves to knit.
