Saint Matthias Teachers Become Students for the Summer.
As teachers, the team at Saint Matthias is always modeling learning and growing, not just teaching it. This summer, their focus shifts to completely the student role, as they learn, grow and explore new horizons to implement in their classrooms and school-wide. Teachers from Saint Matthias are hard at work this summer!
So far, Ms. Campbell (1st grade) and Mrs. Kellermann (preK) attended the Maryland Agricultural Education Association’s summer teacher workshop. Mrs. Damron (middle school Math/Science) is teaching a summer STEM camp through General Electric (GE) at Howard University. Ms. Surat (4th grade) is back South Bend, Indiana for her summer work through the University of Notre Dame. Mrs. Richards (Director of Admissions), through an Archdiocese grant, was able to attend the Vamonos workshop at The University of Notre Dame. Mrs. O’Brien (Resource) is running a summer enrichment camp. Ms. Kelly (art/library) is an instructor at Reading Camp Calvert in July. Mrs. Greer (principal) is attending the Emmaus Series for Catholic School Leaders at Boston College.
