• Welcome to Preschool! My name is Caroline Delaney and I am part of the Horizon preschool team. My position is special because I teach the students in my class at Claude Moore Community Center in their beautiful preschool. While Horizon is still my official school, on a daily basis you will find me at Claude Moore.

    This year will be my fifth year teaching preschool in LCPS. I have had seven years of teaching experience before I came to Horizon. After I received a degree from James Madison university (Go Dukes!) in special education, I taught children with a variety of disabilities in Fairfax County. While working, I earned a Masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education from George Mason University in Early Childhood Special Education. After completing that, I began my favorite part of teaching, working with the ECSE preschool children and their families!

    I live right here in Sterling with my husband and 3 children. When my first child was born, I decided to stay at home and stop teaching. My children attend LCPS schools, and I was able to see the schools from a parents point of view. I loved staying busy with them and volunteering at their school. After ten years, I began substitute teaching and realized how much I had missed the classroom and students. I am so happy to have found a home at Horizon to call my own and be back in the classroom with the children full time!

    When I am not here, you may find me at sports events watching my children play. I love to take my puppy on walks and stay close with family and friends. I am so excited for a GREAT year!
