Middle School Faculty

Indian Creek Crownsville Annapolis Middle School

The Middle School years are a special time in a child’s life, as they learn to navigate new academic and social responsibilities. At Indian Creek, faculty members recognize these challenges, and strive to guide students by promoting citizenship, teaching study skills, and setting challenging - but attainable - goals. Teachers are trained to recognize each student’s strengths, and to help students find appropriate ways to capitalize on these strengths to achieve success both in and out of the classroom.

Indian Creek Crownsville Annapolis Middle SchoolIn a Middle School classroom, you will find teachers who are involved with their students: leading discussions, asking questions, and encouraging students to learn not only a simple answer, but how to reach that answer, as well.

In conjunction with the strong Middle School Outdoor Education program, all Middle School teachers have been trained and are certified as initiative and confidence course instructors. The communication and community-building skills presented in these activities translate directly into students who display confidence and goal-oriented performance in the classroom.
