    Welcome to Third Grade!


    My name is Michelle Louder and I am excited to begin another year at Forest Grove!  My husband and I have 3 kids and moved to Leesburg after spending 13 years in Sterling Park.  After graduating from Penn State I taught first and second grade in Fairfax County for 7 years.  I stayed home to raise my kids for several years while also substituting in Loudoun County and private tutoring in reading. I returned to teach third grade several years ago and I absolutely love it! I'm looking forward to another year as a Forest Grove Falcon and getting to know my class this year.

    This will be an exciting year as we will continue with Personalized Learning in grades 3-5. Students will work on activities and lessons on their level in partners, groups and on their own. I meet with students in small groups daily to ensure everyone gets personalized attention on what they need. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact me by email with any questions or concerns, or even to see how your child is progressing. I want to know all about your child and how I can help him/her have a successful school year!
