Denise Lyons

Chief Operations Officer

I earned my BA in English from the University of Maryland, College Park. My experience in Education started in April 2008, when I joined the founding team of Washington Yu Ying PCS in the Business Department. An internationally-minded, multi-lingual education is an attainable goal and should be available to public school students in the District. In my personal life, I love spending time with family, cooking, hiking, swimming in the warm ocean, cycling and traveling. I am conversationally proficient in Mandarin and possess a rudimentary level of French, which I hope to enhance by working at DCI. DC International School will be a great school for DC students, and I am thrilled to be a part of the adventure.
