Ms. Fara Klein
Hi! I am honored and excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Cardinal Ridge! I received my Bachelor’s Degree from George Mason University in Music and Culture and earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, grades Pre K-6, from Marymount University in 2017. While pursuing my advanced degree, I was a Kindergarten Instructional Assistant, and before that, teacher support and the afterschool coordinator for grades K-8. My years at those Fairfax County schools gave me excellent teaching experience.
I was born in Charlottesville, VA and then moved to Northern Virginia where I grew up and have lived ever since. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since elementary school. I am thrilled to be teaching as part of the Red Wings team! When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy reading, playing piano, nature, arts and crafts, seeing musicals and concerts, knitting, and practicing yoga.
Every child is unique with special gifts and learning styles, and I am looking forward to helping bring out the fullest potential in each student. I am excited for this to be a fun, fulfilling, and overall fantastic school year!
