WASHINGTON—As the start of school begins today, The Children’s Guild District of Columbia Public Charter School, which serves 450 students in kindergarten through eighth grade, named Andrea St. John elementary assistant principal. St. John brings more than 17 years of experience in education and school leadership.
“We’re excited to welcome someone as knowledgeable, experienced and capable as Andrea,” said Principal Bryan Daniels. “Her extensive background in elementary education as a school teacher, curriculum developer and school administrator will bring a great deal to The Children’s Guild.”
Prior to joining The Children’s Guild, St. John was elementary school coordinator with Baltimore City Public Schools, where she coordinated academic programming and supported 21 priority schools. She also served as internship coordinator for Thomas Edison High School of Technology in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Previously, she worked for 11 years as a classroom teacher and elementary assistant principal for Montgomery County Public Schools before accepting an international teaching position as an English teacher for the Abu Dhabi Education Council in the United Arab Emirates. She has additional experience as a lead tutor, program instructor and an elementary team leader in education.
Among her distinctions, St. John volunteered with AmeriCorps as a fellow with the New York City Teaching Fellows program, developed an instructional unit for the National Endowment for the Humanities and presented her thesis research to the New York State Association of Teacher Educators.
St. John is studying for a doctorate in educational leadership and policy studies at Howard University in Washington, D.C. She holds an advanced certificate in school-based administration from Towson University, a master’s degree in elementary education from Long Island University and a bachelor’s degree in political science and women’s studies from Central Connecticut State University.
