Dear Mother of God School Families,

Welcome to Mother of God School!

It is such a blessing to be a part of Mother of God School. This is my second year as principal and I have been overwhelmed with the support, love, and welcome that I have received since joining this family in July of 2021.

I come with 18 years of experience in Catholic Education and Administration in the Archdiocese of Washington. I have a bachelor’s degree in both Theology and Elementary Education, with a strong background in Mathematics and Special Education. I completed a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies and also a master’s in Special Education Administration. My passion is helping to ensure that all families seeking a Catholic education for their children are able to access and benefit from it.

Mother of God is an excellent fit for me as an administrator because I lead with my faith. Our school community is proud of our commitment to a strong academic and social education for each of our students. However, the most unique and important aspect of Mother of God School is that every element of our students’ education is rooted in our deep and authentic Catholic faith and is aimed toward enabling them to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Catholic schools seek to evangelize and change the world, one soul and one family at a time.

I am originally from the Philadelphia area but I moved here almost 18 years ago right after I married my husband.  We have been blessed with six incredible children.

It is an incredible privilege that you, the primary educators of your children, entrust us with sharing in their academic, social, and spiritual formation. I look forward to getting to know you, your children, and your families. 

In Christ,

Melissa Sloan, M.A., M.S.
