Coach Info

  • Jeffrey Browne
    Head Coach
  • Steve Branfman

    Steven Branfman has been a coach, advisor, and pottery teacher at Thayer Academy since 1978. He has been an independent studio potter since 1975 and enjoys an international reputation as a potter, writer, and teacher. He is the founder of The Potters Shop & School, a gallery, school, workshop, bookstore, and his studio, in Needham MA. Mr. Branfman’s Raku ware (a pottery technique with its origins in 16th century Japan and the tea ceremony, characterized by fast firing and quick cooling of the ware) has appeared in more than 150 exhibitions around the U.S. and internationally. He is the author of Raku: A Practical Approach, The Potters Professional Handbook, and Mastering Raku: Making Ware-Glazes-Building Kilns-Firing, and writes regularly for international craft and pottery magazines and journals. Prior to teaching at Thayer, Steven taught in several public school systems and at the college level. He is a sought after guest lecturer, having presented workshops of his pottery forming, glazing, and firing techniques all over the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe. "My goals in the design of the pottery program reflect the general philosophy I have towards teaching craft and art... to expose the students to a hands on craft experience, to heighten their awareness of art and craft objects around them, and to educate them regarding artists and craftspeople and their desire, drive, and need to create art and craft objects. Steven is an accomplished acoustic guitar player and singer, and an active skier, cyclist, soccer, and basketball player. He lives in Newton with his wife Ellen and dog Bruno.

At present, he teaches United States history and Modern European history, but has taught courses on various other subjects, including Russian and Soviet history, Western Political theory and philosophy and World War II. He coaches both football and track and field and performs music annually on Thayer's stage (in the past with his own children, all of whom attended and graduated from the Academy). As the Academy’s Archivist, he helps to preserve and maintain the school's history and traditions by managing the Wentworth Archives (which continues to grow), supervising exhibits, making educational presentations, and participating from time to time in such school events as Founders Day. As have all faculty members at Thayer, he has been Advisor to a small group of students, most often in the 11th grade, but also in other grades. Music, history, athletics and traveling throughout the world remain a big part of his life when not at Thayer. Being a former rugby player and sailor; a regular performer at a local living history museum and, at one time, a member of the cast of King Richard's Faire; and presently a soloist for two performing chorales and a member of two smaller a capella groups, as well as a gardener, beekeeper and an avid reader has and continues to afford him a rich and busy life.
