Hi there! I’m Caitlyn Andersen. I am a Howard County native. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcasting Communications from Elon University, I quickly discovered my love for teaching, and went on to complete my Masters in Elementary Special Education at Notre Dame of Maryland University. For the last four years, I have been a self-contained Multiple Intensive Needs teacher in Anne Arundel County Public Schools. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, shopping, and my new found hobby of sewing. I also don’t let a day go by without a good run or attending a Zumba class at the gym. During the summer time, my husband, my family, and I enjoy traveling to warm places, especially when traveling by boat (cruising)! I was born and raised in Baltimore…so I am a devout Ravens and Orioles fan! I am very excited to be coming to Howard County Public Schools, and I couldn’t have picked a better place to start than at Ducketts Lane! I can’t wait to meet the amazing students and families that will bring enthusiasm and a sense of community to this wonderful school!
