Honoring Retiring Hilltoppers: Clayton Hall
Clayton Hall will be retiring from his adjunct position in the Math Department after a total of 50 years at Hopkins.
Hall previously retired from full-time teaching in 2013. In his time, Hall taught many students: “I have taught all ages at Hopkins and most of the courses offered in the curriculum for grades 7-12. In the last ten years, I have taught mostly eleventh and twelfth graders." During his time on The Hill, he was happy to be a part of the Hopkins Community: “I have greatly enjoyed, and will sincerely miss, working with the ‘hopeful youths’ of Hopkins. I have especially enjoyed seeing them at reunions and hearing about all of their wonderful accomplishments.” In his free time, Hall loves to reconnect with his former students: “This past fall, I saw a bunch of them at Washington University in St. Louis. I also invite them back to Hopkins for a free lunch and we usually have our photo taken in front of their class banner.” During his retirement, Hall hopes to be closer to his children. “My wife, Mary, and I are planning to move out of state and live near our children, Clayton III '05, Erin '08, and Emily '12,” said Hall. He also wants to keep pursuing his current passions: “We hope to continue teaching and to do more hiking and biking in the White Mountains and at Acadia National Park.”
