Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to first grade! My name is Mrs. Owen, and I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. This will be my fourteenth year in education, and my sixth year teaching here at Round Hill. I previously taught second grade for two years, and have now been teaching first grade for the last three years. I am so excited to once again have the opportunity to work with our Round Hill first graders! I live in Purcellville, Virginia with my husband, two children, and our dog, Pepper. I enjoy spending time with my family at Lake Anna, as well as in Florida lounging on the beach. I have a daughter, Kaleigh, who is studying Premed at JMU, and my son, Alex, just started at JMU is studying Accounting.
I am so very excited to be your child's first grade teacher here at Round Hill Elementary School! There are so many fun and exciting times ahead of us, as we learn and grow together in first grade! It is my goal that the students in my classroom will be confident, life long learners who not only learn the curriculum, but also develop a love of learning. First grade is a special place and it is a favorite grade of mine to teach! I recognize that children are individuals, and try to meet and challenge each child's needs. My classroom is a creative and nurturing place for students. I strive to make sure that each child reaches his or her full potential and feels, not only safe and secure, but also loved. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
