English Teacher Journalism Teacher Academic Advisor DREAM (disabilities awareness club) Moderator At FSHA Since 2017
What do your students call you?
Mr. Dibblee, Mr. Dibs, Dibbles, Dibblee
What has been your proudest professional accomplishment?
In his most recent book, "Talking to Strangers," Malcolm Gladwell cited an essay I wrote on Amanda Knox for the LA Review of Books, which I'm pretty sure makes me a bonafide American wise man.
What has been your favorite teaching moment at Flintridge Sacred Heart?
Oh wow. Where do I start? Luisa Farroni '22 did an especially memorable job of performing Romeo's murder of Tybalt in my English I class. I was really proud when Cerys Davies '20 won a superior for commentary writing at the Journalism Education Association national convention. In English IV, Sam Covey '19 really threw herself into an essay she was writing on Hollywood glamour, to the extent that she drove all the way out to the Beverly Hills Hotel and posted up in the lobby in order to document the scene there.
What is Flintridge Sacred Heart's best kept secret?
Every type of student we have feels comfortable here. That's a huge accomplishment.
When not in the classroom/office, where can you be found?
At the dog park, at a coffee shop, in my garden, or on my couch
What's your favorite place in the world?
The shore of Lake Superior in Michigan
What are you surprisingly good at?
I have great taste in furniture.
What book, movie, work of art, piece of music, etc. can you not imagine life without?
