My name is Sherrell Thorne. I am excited to become the lead teacher to the Active Asteroids at STEM Preschool-Capitol Hill. I have a passionate and nurturing heart and positive attitude toward my co-workers, parents, and especially to the children. I have been in the education field for 4 years. Through those year I have enjoyed working with young children and earning my CDA. My students will enjoy educational hands-on activities daily to meet the STEM curriculum.

Creative Coders

Hello, my name is Valena Singleton. I have been blessed to be a part of STEM Preschool’s D.C. location. I've nurtured a passion to work with children of all ages and abilities for more than eight years. With a Virginia Commonwealth University Bachelor’s in Early Education, a minor in Special Education and loads of time and training I graduated from babysitting to becoming Director of a thriving preschool in Prince William county. I take my calling as a teacher very seriously and can't wait to lead the Rockin' Robots two year old class to help them develop skills, social interactions, and discover new things for the first time! I always enjoy being creative and open to new ideas.


I am a fur-parent to my Maltese pup, Prince and I enjoy spending quality time with family exploring the DMV area. I am excited to grow with you and your child and l look forward to a great year!

Eager Engineers

Hello and Welcome ^___^ I am excited for a new year at STEM Preschool-Capitol Hill as the lead teacher in the Active Asteroid's classroom. This is my second year here at STEM Preschool and I’m ready to start new learning adventures at the amazing new location. I was previously a 2's lead teacher at STEM Preschool - Arlington. My lesson plans are filled with interactive, innovative, social, hands-on, educational, and fun activities. I love open communication with parents to ensure every child's success at STEM Preschool. 


I am a native Washingtonian. I attended The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (Hawk Pride Catch It). I have 5 years of experience in childcare. I LOVE technology, glitter, arts & crafts, and laughing. I am looking forward to meeting every new student and parent!

Eager Engineers 

Hello, my name is Maegan Davis and I am thrilled to become the three's lead teacher with the Eager Engineers! I am not new to the STEM Preschool team as I have been the assistant teacher for the Eager Engineers since September of 2018. I have a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from Georgetown University. I very much enjoy using my science background to teach kids about the world around them and to nurture their natural curiosity and creativity. I volunteered all throughout high school in children's programs through my elementary school and worked in a church nursery during my senior year of undergraduate study at Stetson University. I grew up in South Florida and have been living in the DC area for the past three years. In my free time like to read books and contemplate if I should work on getting any more hobbies. I am very excited to continue working with the current STEM Preschool families and look forward to working with new families in the future!
