Name: Ms. Deirdre Maher
Position: 4th Grade Teacher
School: BH Wood Elementary School
Welcome to 4M!
I am excited to be returning for my fourth year at the Wood School. This year is already off to a great start! Mrs. Peter and I are team-teaching. We both are teaching math and ELA to our respective homerooms; I am teaching social studies for both 4M and 4P, whereas, Mrs. Peter is teaching science for both 4M and 4P.
I earned my bachelor of arts from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. I graduated as a government major, with a sociology concentration. While in undergraduate school, I was incredibly fortunate to study off-campus in an American Justice program at American University in Washington, DC and held an internship with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children. I then studied abroad through Syracuse University at the Universite de Strasbourg in Strasbourg France. I earned my masters in elementary education from UMass Boston.
I have taught in several communities, and my classroom teaching experience ranges from teaching 4th-8th grade.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments you have. It's an honor being able to work with you and your children.
