Maggie Dean has a passion for developing things. Whether that's friendships, gardens, dreams, or students, she loves coming alongside people to be curious about discovering God's narrative in the stories He writes with our lives. After graduating from Christopher Newport University (BS Biology/Spanish minor), she has spent 10 years in youth ministry and teaching but has found that she is particularly passionate about middle school aged students. Her dream job to date has been teaching outdoors at Scent of Water the past two years in our middle school. Some of her other delights include unstructured time to rest, pray, write, bike, or cook.
