Tim Raby - Dorm Supervisor
I came to Woodstock in February 2008 as a Dorm Parent working in the old Hostel. I worked with Grade 9-12 boys before becoming Supervisor of the newly renovated Hostel in July 2010. I like to play various sports and am the High School boys' football coach. I am also involved in activities such as Agape, the High School Christian Fellowship. I have a teaching background and taught at Secondary School level for two years in the UK prior to coming to Woodstock. I have also taught some Environmental Science and Global Issues in Woodstock. I first came to India when I was 18 and on a gap year, to volunteer in an Indian School and a boys' home. During the school holidays I'm very active and enjoy trekking and travelling in India and other parts of Asia.

Aditya Manral - Dorm Parent
I am a commerce graduate from Lucknow Christian College, India. I further did a PG diploma in advertising and Public Relations and worked with an international advertising agency (JWT) for 2 years as an account executive. Since I had worked with a lot of schools on a voluntary basis, conducting music programs while I was studying, I decided that I should come to Woodstock and work as a dorm parent. So far the experience of working in Woodstock has been great, and I plan to stay here for another 2 years
Caleb Holman - Dorm Parent
I grew up in Idaho Springs, Colorado, slightly higher than Woodstock with a lot more snow.
