Mrs. Szady


Welcome to Fifth Grade!!!

           Hello! My name is Mrs. Szady and this will be my sixth year with the Loudoun County Public School system.  I completed my Master of Arts in Teaching from James Madison University.  I have teaching experience in Loudoun County Public Schools, Rockingham County Public Schools, Augusta County Public Schools, and Stanton City Public Schools.  While at RCPS, I attended their Tech ToolKit Academy and became proficient with popular IPad applications Aurasma, Educreations, and Explain Everything.  I enjoy finding new strategies and teaching techniques to help my students achieve!

            Some of my hobbies include reading, searching Pinterest, going hiking, studying martial arts, and Pokemon Go.  I enjoy spending a lot of time with my 5 month old, Ember.  I enjoy going on adventures with our dogs, Gloves and Boots.

            This year I will teach two sections of Writing, Reading, Social Studies.  I’m excited to engage my students with the newest teaching methods and resources that are available: Pinterest, Youtube, and other social media have made it much easier to incorporate technology into Reading, Writing, and Social Studies lessons.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I’m looking forward to my sixth year at Arcola!
