Brooke Mallin joined the LCDS faculty in 2019. She brings with her a wide breadth of teaching, coaching and mentoring to the fifth-grade classroom.  Graduating from American University in 2001, she worked as an elementary school teacher, a curriculum trainer/writer, and a teacher mentor. She continued her education at Pepperdine University receiving a Masters in Educational Technology, as she moved onto high school to teach in the International Baccalaureate program. There she taught sociology, journalism, engineering and continued to mentor teachers as well as work with curriculum. Eventually, she exclusively taught engineering, where she helped her school earn National Distinguished School status for the past three years.  Outside of the classroom, she currently serves on the United States Hunter and Jumper Association Horsemanship Quiz challenge task force where she develops national curriculum and final program. In her free time, Brooke can be found on adventures with her husband and two wonderful children, Jack (‘26) and Elizabeth (‘28), dreaming of horses or by the beach with a good book.
