Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Carlyn Hanzel

Welcome to First Grade!

My name is Carlyn Hanzel and I am excited to continue my fifth year of teaching at Cardinal Ridge Elementary!  I graduated from Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. 

I am a native of Northern Virginia, grew up in Sterling and graduated from Potomac Falls High School.  I love spending time with family and friends, playing the guitar (ukulele too), exercising and cooking.

I am excited for the opportunity to help your child experience the joy of learning and growing. This will be a great year!
