 My name is Julie Rizalvo,

Welcome to 2nd grade!! I am SO excited to start another wonderful year at Buffalo Trail Elementary!   

Prior to coming to Buffalo Trail, I taught in Prince George’s County, MD and a few years in other schools in Loudoun County.    


It's hard to believe that I began teaching in 2001!  The 2013-2014 school year marks my 12th year in the classroom!


I grew up in Southeastern Pennsylvania (Go Eagles and Phillies!), and love to travel back to see my family. 


I attended Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA, where I majored in Business Administration/Marketing and Elementary Education. 


I earned my Masters of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction; with a concentration in Technology in the spring of 2010. 


On January 1, 2012,  we welcomed our son, Lucas, to our family (HOORAY for the first baby in Virginia!!)!  When I'm not in school, I enjoy...running around after a toddler, finding excuses to go to Starbucks, and baking!
We are going to have a GREAT year!
We had a great time at Field Day!
This game was HARD!!    This game was great, but they kept chasing ME!
During Scientific Experiments, we tested the effects of different types of soap on pepper!  No one even sneezed....well not many!
Look what soap on a finger does!     Hard at work making observations!
 Check out photos of our parents at our American Education Week activity!
We filled up our WARM FUZZY bucket by doing good deeds and following school and class guidelines.  We earned a movie and popcorn party.  We enjoyed watching "Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving", eating popcorn and cuddling with friends.  

 After reading Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco, we decided to try out her recipe for thunder cake.  Yes, even the tomatoes were added.  The verdict?  TWO THUMBS UP :)
