Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Coffelt

 My name is Michelle Coffelt and you can find me and my fabulous students in room 15.  This is my eighth year teaching 3rd grade at Countryside Elementary.  I previously taught 2nd grade for ten years in Frederick County, VA (at Orchard View Elementary).  

   Let me tell  you about myself.  I grew up in Jeannette, which is a small town in PA.  As an only child, I enjoy going home to visit my parents as often as I can.  I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh (main campus) with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Elementary Education.  After graduating in 2005, I moved to Winchester, VA for my first teaching job.  Then, I moved to Loudoun County in 2015 to start a new adventure!   
   When I'm not at school, I keep myself busy in many ways.  Spending time with my husband, Jonathan, and my toddler, Amantha, are a top priority.  I enjoy being near water (the pool or beach), watching movies, taking walks, cooking healthy meals, reading magazines, cheering on all Pittsburgh sports teams, and shopping ( especially at Target).  
   I absolutely love teaching 3rd graders!  I do my best to make my classroom a positive, fun environment.  Getting to know my students and their families is something that I look forward to.  I know we are going to have a fantastic 2022-2023 school year!
