Lisa Pavelko

Mrs. Pavelko is a graduate of Penn State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood and Adolescent Education and a minor in Special Education. She is also a graduate of George Mason University, where she obtained a Master's in Educational Leadership. She is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and happily made the move to Virginia in 2015 to join the wonderful Discovery team!

Mrs. Pavelko now lives in Leesburg with her husband, Mitchell. Together, they enjoy spending time with family and friends, finding new places to visit in Virginia, and FaceTiming with their nieces, Rory and Sloan! Mr. and Mrs. Pavelko are thrilled to be welcoming their first baby girl in December 2023.

What is most important to Mrs. Pavelko is that Discovery fosters risk-taking, collaboration, trust, and acceptance of others and their differences. Our goal is that every student in our building feels cared for, valued, and respected.

Mrs. Pavelko is looking forward to a fantastic year and is always open to any questions, comments, or concerns –
