Michelle MagedHello, I am Mrs. Maged and I am so excited to be back at Discovery for my 4th year.
I have been teaching in Loudoun County for 15 years. I attended the University of Maryland and George Mason University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Health and Physical Education. I taught for ten years at the middle school level before taking some time off to raise my boys. I started back in the county five years ago. When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my boys participate in sports, relaxing at the beach, and cheering on my favorite sports team.
Although this school year will look very different I am very excited about the activities we have planned.
Mr. Joseph has been teaching Physical Education for 25 years. He is excited to begin teaching his 15th year in Loudoun Co. at Discovery Elementary School. He previously taught eight years at Cedar Lane Elementary School in Loudoun Co.. He has taught Physical Education at Dogwood ES in Fairfax Co. for 5 years and Wassom Middle School in Fort Campbell, KY for 5 years, as well as coached football, wrestling and tennis for Fort Campbell H.S. Mr. Jospeh has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education and Health Education from Fairmont State University and a Master's degree in Physical Education emphasizing in Motor Development from West Virginia University. He enjoys coaching volleyball and basketball, spending time outdoors, and spending time with family.
