Welcome to Miss Southwick's class! I am one of three second grade teachers here at Edgemere Elementary.  I graduated from McDaniel College in 2011 with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Elementary Education. I also received my Master's degree from Notre Dame of Maryland University in Leadership in Teaching Mathematics. This will be my ninth year teaching in my own classroom. Before coming to Edgemere, I worked with small groups of students, as an interventionist, to reinforce reading and math skills in Carroll County.
