FELLOW: ANDREA MENEGHELLO
Ms. Merriam is excited to join the 4th grade team as the math resident teacher! As a fellow with the Center for Inspired Teaching, she is looking forward to developing her practice and contributing to the Brent community.
Originally from Vermont, Ms. Merriam went to high school in Massachusetts then moved to Washington, D.C. for college. While earning her B.A. in Psychology from The George Washington University, she discovered her passion for teaching. After graduating, she worked at The Ivymount School in Rockville, tutored privately, and just wrapped up two years at a local charter school. She taught kindergarten and 4th grade during her time at that school before joining Brent.
In her spare time, Ms. Merriam loves to bake, play the piano, spend time with loved ones, and travel.
