Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Andrea McDevitt
My name is Andrea McDevitt. I have been a teacher for the past 11 years in Richmond Hill, Queens. I joined the Meadow family last year teaching 1st grade! I currently hold a Master of Liberal Arts from Stony Brook University and a Bachelor of Science in Childhood Education from LI Post. In addition, I earned a certification in yoga and mindfulness through the program Breathe for Change.
I believe in a student-centered approach to education. I strive everyday to create pathways to success that provide my students with the skills they need to build bright, successful futures. I truly believe that in order for children to succeed in the classroom and beyond, they must first be mindful in order to develop a sense of self that in turn enables them to contribute positively to the world around them.
