Lower School Faculty

Indian Creek Crownsville Annapolis FacultyFaculty in the Lower School and Early Childhood programs provide a warm, nurturing environment in conjunction with a dynamic classroom setting that instills Indian Creek’s youngest students with an excitement for learning. Faculty members come to Indian Creek with a broad range of backgrounds, including international teaching, their own education, and personal interests. Veteran teachers mentor and partner with newer teachers to ensure that students receive the best of all worlds: tried-and-true teaching practices along with exciting and new ventures.

Professional development is important at Indian Creek, and faculty members are encouraged to seek out opportunities which will help them bring new skills and ideas right into the classroom. Teachers are trained to recognize the strengths of each child, and help children utilize those strengths in developmentally-appropriate ways to help them achieve success both in school and out. In recent years, Lower School teachers have participated in local conferences hosted by the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools as well as national programs such as the National Math Conference through the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
