Chrissy McHugh is our new 3’s teacher.  She and her husband both attended PHCC.  The McHugh’s sons, Jack (8), Charlie (5) and Ben (2) will all have attended the program as well.

Mrs. McHugh has her degree from The College of Notre Dame of MD in Elementary and Early Childhood Education.  Her Master’s Degree is from Towson University in School Library Media and Technology.

Chrissy’s many teaching experiences through HCPS, BCPS and Gymboree Play and Music Program have prepared her to help your children learn through play and provide your children with a variety of learning experiences.
