Finney 2022

     My name is Miss Rachel Finney, and it will be my eighth year at Sterling Elementary come Fall 2024. I spent the first 6 years on the fourth grade team. I joined the fifth grade team last year, and this will be my second year in 5th! I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Early Childhood and Adolescent Education (PreK-4th grade certification) and a dual-minor in Spanish and Special Education. After college, I taught preschool for a year, before moving here to Sterling, Virginia. 

    I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I love all Pittsburgh sports, especially the Pittsburgh Steelers! I also LOVE everything Penn State, of course. When I am not teaching, I love to go to sporting events and spend any time I can with friends and family.   

    I am blessed to serve another year at LCPS, alongside my Sterling Elementary "pack"!  I’m looking forward to getting to know your children and watching them grow both socially and academically during our year together in 5th grade!

    Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions/comments/concerns or anything you want to talk about this year!
