Meet Mrs. Klingerman ( Rm. 218)
I will be the Lead EL teacher this school year and look forward to meeting new students and families. I have been teaching grades K-5 for 24 years and will begin my 8th year as an EL teacher. I'm thrilled to continue my career as a Mighty Macaw. I consider myself a lifelong learner and have several Alma maters including,: VCU, James Madison University and Virginia Tech. I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with endorsement in English as a second language. I look forward to instilling my love of learning to others. I will be collaborating with the kindergarten, first, and third grade teams this year, it will be a great year for all!
In my spare time, I love spending time with my 5 year old daughter and my husband. We live in Leesburg with our cats and dog as well. There is never a dull moment! Cooking, traveling, making new friends, and listening to live music are among my favorite things to do. I love to smile and hope that my students find that an endearing quality. A smile is the same in every language!
I want to welcome everyone to stop by and learn more about what the EL teachers at Madison’s Trust have planned for the upcoming school year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to learn more.
