Meet Mrs. Briskin!
Hi! My name is Mrs. Briskin and I’m so excited to be teaching at Horizon Elementary School! This is my 10th year teaching! I studied at James Madison University (Go Dukes!) where I earned my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I started my teaching career student teaching Kindergarten and completed the year teaching in a 3rd grade position. My journey continued teaching first grade for 6 years in Fairfax County Public Schools. This will be my 3rd year teaching first grade with my wonderful Horizon Comet Family.
I met my amazing husband playing ultimate frisbee and we got married in 2016. We moved to Loudoun County and I’m so ecstactic to be teaching close to our new home. I love spending time playing with our baby girl Elana and my other “fur baby” Bubba. My favorite colors are purple and teal and I love starbucks and m&m's.
I love working with children and watching them grow in every area. I continue to strive to make a nurturing and loving environment where kids feel free to take risks and be brave and build positive relationships. I look forward to another great year of fun learning in First Grade!
