Mrs. Margaret Ayers
Hello! My name is Margaret Ayers and I'm so excited to be your child's first grade teacher! This will be my fifth year teaching first grade at Discovery Elementary. I have spent most of my life living in Northern Virginia, but when I was in first grade myself, I lived in Arizona!
I attended James Madison University, and have a Bachelor’s and Master of Arts in Teaching (K-6th grade). I live with my husband and my two dogs, Arrow and Ember. When I'm not teaching, I love hiking, baking, and anything that is outside and active. I also love watching Fixer Upper and pretending I'm an interior designer when I'm doing home projects.
First grade is such a special year. Students will grow so much socially and academically, and will learn important skills that they will carry with them throughout the rest of their schooling. In building a safe, inclusive classroom community, I hope to instill confidence in my students to be themselves, work with others, and be curious, engaged learners. I know this will be an amazing year and am excited to work with my students!
