Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cornell

My name is Amy Cornell and I look forward to an exciting year! This is my 21st year teaching and my 9th year in the gifted department. I received my undergraduate degree in Economics from Washington & Lee University, my Master's Degree in Education from the University of Texas Pan American, and my Gifted Endorsement from UVA. I have taught and lived all over the place, from Texas to Italy to Virginia, but I now call Loudoun County home with my husband and two kids, Luke and Anna. We are a true Banneker family - my kids both attend Banneker and my husband is one of the 5th grade teachers here. Go Broncos!

In my spare time, I am a beekeeper and enjoy gardening, baking, yoga, and running around with my kids outside. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
