Maggie has had a passion for teaching and learning ever since she was in elementary school. As a daughter of elementary special education teachers, Maggie learned the value of education early on. Her parents’ work inspired her; their commitment to students, their dedication to their professional growth and personal learning, as well as their strong passion for service and community was influential in Maggie choosing a similar career path.
Maggie attended Towson University, where she earned her Bachelors of Science degree in integrated Elementary and Special Education while also competing on their swim team.
After graduation, Maggie began her teaching career on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Queen Anne’s County. She taught at an elementary school where she worked closely with students with exceptionalities, their teachers, and their families. Maggie was also the head swim coach at the local high school. While teaching, Maggie earned her master's degree in Special Education in May of 2014 and her master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading Education in May 2017, both from the University of Virginia. After working in Queen Anne’s for six years, Maggie then served as Disability Access Specialist at Washington College, prior to accepting the position as the Director of Academic Support at St. Andrew's.
Maggie, her husband Matt, also a faculty member at St. Andrew's, and their 4 month-old son Jack, are excited to become a part of the St. Andrew's community. Jack will be attending St. Andrews Preschool and the Harris family will be living in Founders F2 this year.
