•  Mr. B.

    For the 2019-2020 school year, I'll be entering my 22ndyear in Education, and my 21st in Loudoun County. This will also be my 16th year as a Cool Spring Penguin. I have spent my time at Cool Spring in either 5th or 4th grade. I am very excited to remain a part of the Cool Spring Community, and to work with the latest and greatest generation of Cool Spring Penguins. I spent my first years teaching at Guilford & Algonkian Elementary Schools (both located in the Sterling area). I taught fourth grade for the first seven years of my career. After that, I moved to fifth grade, where I spent the next five years. I then spent the two years teaching the full curriculum in fourth grade. This marks my 7th year back in 5th grade, where I am very happy. I am ecstatic to continue to be one of the teachers to help students embrace a love of learning. This year I will be teaching Language Arts, and Mathematics. I'm excited to continue working with Ms. Demasi, and to be working with Mrs. Jennings again.
