Miss McDermott

Hello, my name is Aileen McDermott.  I have been with PWCS for 9 years!  This is my first year at Buckland Mills and I could not be more excited to be a part of this family! I started as a 4th grade teacher, then moved to Gifted Resource teacher and a ITC. 
I have lived in Virginia for 9 years, but am initially from outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My undergraduate degree was from Penn State University for Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education. When I am not teaching or planning for teaching I enjoy visiting my family in Ocean City, New Jersey or going for hikes with my friends. My goal is to partner with parents to help challenge, enrich and motivate each student to success and confidence.  Here is to a GREAT YEAR AHEAD.  

 

My email is mcdermae@pwcs.edu. You can email me by clicking my name:  Miss McDermott. Please feel free to email me with any questions as we work together in this new virtual environment!
