Mrs. Bonnie Styles

Welcome to SEARCH!

My name is Mrs. Bonnie Styles and I've been a SEARCH /GT Resource teacher for many years  Prior to that, I taught 5th grade, in Loudoun mostly, for  prior to becoming a SEARCH teacher.   This will be my first year as a FUSION teacher.  This is a very exciting change.   I'm looking forward to being at Sully every day, instead of splitting my time between two schools.

I have three of my own children.  My older son graduated from LCPS in 2020 and my daughter graduated in 2022.  My younger son is in middle school.  I have three dogs (all chocolate Labrador retrievers) that bring a lot of joy to my life. I also enjoy gardening.

Teaching SEARCH allows me to share unusual, different kinds of things with students that they might not typically see during the regular school day.  We do puzzles and play games, learn new things and explore new ways to think about things we already know to encourage deeper learning.  We learn about extraordinary people outside of mainstream history (ever heard of Horace Pippin or Roger Price?)   SEARCH encourages students to think their own way, build stamina for challenging tasks and to be creative thinkers and problem solvers.  I love to see students doing their best and discovering where their talents lie.
