Hello everyone, I’m Teddy Palmore…your friendly neighborhood tech editor! I do theater and Model UN, I'm a big fan of Marvel, and I love hanging out with friends. This is my first year on the staff of The Exchanged.
Hi, my name is Kendall McCree and I am the NCS arts coordinator for The Exchanged this 2021-2022 school year. I am a sophomore and I have been at NCS since 5th grade, but this is my first year working for The Exchanged. Outside of The Exchanged I love listening to music and playing field hockey. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at (202)-718-771. I am totally looking forward to seeing all of the artistic talent on the close this year!
Hi, I’m Cassidy Kaler, a sophomore at NCS and one of the activities coordinators for The Exchanged this year. When I’m not spending way too much time on homework, you’ll find me reading fantasy or sci-fi books, running, playing basketball, watching Grey’s Anatomy, or doing something theater-related. If you ever have an idea for a playlist or crossword, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
My name is Erick Buendia and I’m the Arts Coordinator for The Exchanged. I’m very excited to be a part of the team and I hope to bring more art to everyone this year. I enjoy creating visual art as well as filmmaking in my free time
Hello, I am Sage Stretch, the NCS close coordinator for The 2021-22 Exchanged! I am a Sophomore, and I came to NCS for my freshman year (2020). I am a soccer and lacrosse player, and I am a member of the Vestry. I am a 49er’s, Warriors, and SF Giants fan, and I love hiking and backpacking.

Hello, my name is Peter Donets, and I am this year’s activity coordinator. I am really excited to work in filling every issue of the magazine with thematic content and puzzles for our brightest readers. I have many hobbies, but right now I am only focused on two: attending the staff meetings for The Exchanged and looking for more artists and graphic creators to contribute to the subsequent issues. If you just skipped through my bio for whatever reason, just remember one thing: email@example.com. In other words, if you have anything at all that could be remotely relevant to the next issue, just email me and I will do the rest. Once again, firstname.lastname@example.org, and hope you already had the chance to enjoy some of my crosswords!
Hi I’m Holden Lombardo and I’m the STA Close Coordinator for The Exchanged this year. I’ll be providing STA and close events as well as descriptions of different school clubs throughout the year. Apart from the exchanged, I run cross-country and I like to go on bike rides and cook. I’m excited to help The Exchanged stay strong this school year.
Hi everyone, my name is Jack Kaplan, and I’ll be serving as the St. Albans opinion editor. In addition to arguing about politics, I love to play sports, listen to music, and hang out with friends. I look forward to a great year of ensuring that The Exchanged is a balanced paper that respects all opinions!
Hi! I am named Benjamin Acosta, and I am half black (Caribbean style) and half Filipino. I enjoy being multiethnic (in no small part due to culinary reasons), as well as learning about the world’s many cultures.
What’s your favorite idea? Mine is being creative. I try to write (creatively) every day, because really good storytelling is fun and powerful, and I’d like to reach that point. You know what is really good storytelling? Star Wars. I don’t really watch many new shows, just Star Wars again and again (I’m kinda weird in that way). The Clone Wars is my favorite, of course. That is some excellent storytelling. Very fun.
You know what else is fun (and powerful)? Your brain. Your brain is quite creative, quite beautiful. So I like to learn about neuroscience a bit (and insects, cause they’re just cool). That’s also why if there’s anything on your brain you should reach out to me and write about it! That’s me, your very own theme editor. Bon appetit! (What, words have taste;)
