Early Bird Registration Discount Ends February 19th!
I am currently a science teacher at Meade Middle School and will be entering my fifth year of teaching this September. I hold a Bachelor’s in Forensic Science from Marymount University, a Master’s in General Education from Northcentral University, and am currently working on my Doctoral in Curriculum Writing and Leadership.
Going into my third year of being a Camp Director, I hope to provide an engaging, educational, fun, and safe atmosphere for the DSRC Campers, where they are in the best position to learn from Counselors as well as peers.
