3rd grade

Danielle Withrow, 3rd Grade Social Studies

Working with and teaching children is a deep-rooted passion of mine. I previously worked in the Information Technology (IT) sector for 8 years before beginning my career as an elementary teacher. The recent career change has proven to be more than rewarding! I am dedicated to teaching in BPS and helping to foster tomorrow’s decision makers and future leaders.

I grew up in Dorchester, MA and moved to Milton, MA where I attended middle and high school. I went to Bentley University located in Waltham, MA where I earned a degree in Business Management. I graduated from UMass Boston with a Masters in Education and subsequently began my teaching career in the city of Boston.

When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy traveling the globe, learning about new cultures, and spending time with family and friends. The daughter of Jamaican-American parents, I grew up spending many summers with family on the island of Jamaica. My childhood experiences gave me a greater appreciation of where I come from and it opened a world of curiosity for learning about different cultures. This year, I will be teaching Grade 3 Humanities. I am happy to be joining the Bates community!

Victoria Treddin, 3rd Grade Inclusion Specialist

I have grown up in Boston my whole life. I went to elementary school here in Roslindale and college in Fenway. I graduated from Wheelock College in 2011 and have been teaching ever since. I am currently pursuing my master’s degree as a reading specialist. I have taught for the past five years in Boston Public Schools as an inclusion teacher and sheltered English immersion teacher and am thrilled to be at the Bates this year!

I currently live in Stoughton with my wonderful husband, my amazing four-month-old baby, Jackson, and our two dogs, Simba and Trooper. In my free time I love spending time with my new little family, going to antique stores and flea markets, knitting and crocheting, and spending time with friends.
