I am a World War II buff

Maribeth Littlefield

History Department Chair
Teacher for 37 years
Mother of current history teacher, Anna ’07
May Program Leader of the World War II Trip to Europe

“It is magical here at Oldfields.
I have seen girls enter, lacking self-confidence, shy in demeanor, and with little direction. Upon graduation, I see poised, confident, young women. We find something special to foster in every girl, and that is how the transformation begins.”

BS, Ursinus College
M Ed, West Chester University

I am a choreographer

Carrie Hammond

Performing Arts Chair
Dorm Parent
Director of OS Dance Company

“I love teaching all styles of dance – from ballet and lyrical, to jazz, tap, and hip hop. Whether dancing becomes a career for my girls, or a personal experience for their enjoyment, I never tire of seeing
them shine!”

I am an engineer

Drew Shelton

Physics Teacher
STEAM Committee 
Yearbook Advisor

"I love to share my passion for science by helping Oldfields' students discover and prove scientific concepts instead of memorizing them. I enjoy solving problems using science and engineering as demonstrated by one of my favorite past times—dismantling and repairing electronics—often with the help of my students. I love gadgets such as my Cricut® cutting machine and the school's 3-D printers. Engineering was great, but teaching is my dream job."
