Denise Metz is a career educator with over 20 years of experience in education in Philadelphia. In 2009, she joined the Belmont Charter Network family as a first grade teacher before becoming the Director of the Lower School, then later the Director of Instruction at Belmont Elementary. She is now Head of Academics for the Network. One of her proudest moments was watching her very first class at Belmont become the first graduating class from BCHS in 2021!
Denise holds an MA in English Literature from Georgetown University, MS Ed from St. Joseph’s University and a BA from Fordham University. Denise has three children, all of whom attended Belmont Academy and Inquiry Charter School. When she is not at Belmont, Denise can be found walking in the Wissahickon with her family, drinking coffee in a bookstore, and playing video games.
Denise knows that every moment with a child is an opportunity for growth, learning, conversation, and connection. She is thankful to the families and students of Belmont for all of the shared moments and opportunities.
