Avery Finch

lower school

Avery has been a 4th grade lead teacher at Greene Street since 2015, with a two-year break from 2018-2020 when she lived in Pittsburgh. She studied English and creative writing at Middlebury College, then worked for several years in the publishing industry before earning her M.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Pennsylvania. She has also worked for an arts and environmental education non-profit organization, and enjoys bringing current events into the classroom.

Avery absolutely loves teaching the leaders of the Lower School. Avery lives in Mt. Airy with her partner, their cat, and their toddler. When she's not at school Avery likes to crochet, listen to music and podcasts, and go camping.
