Ms. Maria Noland has taught Early Childhood and Lower Division French at St. Richard’s Episcopal School since 2020.
Maria enjoys bringing her love for the French language and for French history to her lessons at SRES and using these to elicit in her students curiosity about the world, past, present, and to come.
Prior to teaching at St. Richard’s, Maria worked as a private French tutor in New York City, volunteered in a Waldorf kindergarten there, and taught intermediate and advanced French to undergraduates at New York University. She has also lived and worked for a summer as a volunteer English teacher for visually impaired orphans in Beijing, China.
A native of Brookville, Indiana, Maria earned a B.A. magna cum laude in Anthropology from New York University, an M.A. in French Studies from New York University, and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, running, painting and traveling.
