Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Lerch

Welcome to 5th Grade!  My name is Amy Lerch I am so excited to be back at Cardinal Ridge for another great year in 5th Grade.  

My husband and I have two sons in college, one attending  Virigina Tech and one at NOVA.  I also have an super sweet Pekingese/Pomeranian named Simon who loves to walk all over South Riding. I was born in the mountains of Western North Carolina and spent my teenage years in Pennsylvania.  I have a Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting from Temple University and completed my graduate coursework at Shenandoah University.  

Getting to know each of my students is very important to me.  One of my favorite quotes states, “Students don’t care what you know, until they know you care”.  It is when students feel safe and secure that they are most willing to take the risks we want and need them to take in order for true learning to occur.   I can’t wait to get to know the rising fabulous 5th Graders at Cardinal Ridge Elementary!
