Jason Carter, a Head of School at the Young School’s Honeygo location, joined the school in 2011, bringing 10 years of teaching experience in the fields of early childhood and special education. He credits his experience in both public and private school systems for developing his passion for working with families. Jason has held the positions of Language Arts teacher, Cottage Director, and Head of School. As Head of School, Jason strives to create a comfortable and caring environment for both staff and students.
Jason holds both a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Education in Teaching & Learning, Early Childhood, from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. He has devoted much of his career to exploring education within the natural world.
Born in Baltimore, Jason spent most of his life in Linthicum Heights – a place he maintains is home to “the best sub shops.” In 2015, Jason and his wife welcomed their first child who is currently enrolled in the Young School Pre-K program. In 2018, they welcomed another child into their family and the house has become full. In their free time, they can be found backpacking the Appalachian Trail, camping in various national parks or simply relaxing around the campfire.
Stacy Knott is the Young School’s assistant head of school at Honeygo. Since joining the Young School in 2005, she has worked as an art studio teacher and as a cottage director. A native of Maryland, Stacy graduated from the University of Phoenix with a B.A. in Elementary Education and earned her A.A.S. in Early Childhood Education from the Community College of Baltimore County. In addition to her years at the Young School, Stacy has worked in the early childhood education field for 16 years and has attended Reggio-based workshops and visited Reggio-inspired schools.
Stacy admires how the Young School encourages the growth of its educators and inspires teachers to look deeper at the meaning of each child’s experiences. Her two daughters have both grown through the school’s program, and she looks forward to enrolling her future child so that he – or she – can enjoy the same educational opportunities.
