Pre-K Coordinator


Jonah Davenport grew up locally in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  He went to Wesleyan University and then, eventually, got a Masters in Early Childhood Special Education at The George Washington University.  He has been teaching for 23 years, first in Boston, then in a private school in Bethesda, and for the last 15 years at Elsie Whitlow Stokes.  At Stokes he taught Kindergarten for four years, was a Learning Specialist for two years, a third/fourth grade teacher for one year, and the Pre-K Coordinator thereafter.  He feels honored to be part of this diverse, vibrant, and caring community.


Mr. Davenport is also a Stokes parent with a daughter in 7th grade at DCI and a son in 4th grade.  He is a long-time (ago) soccer player and current coach.  A third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Mr. Davenport’s newly installed titanium/bionic hip has driven him to seek new athletic outlets. He is an avid handyman, gardener, and poker player.
