Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Gretchen Seip and this is my sixth year teaching 1st grade at Madison's Trust Elementary. I grew up in Loudoun County and love having the opportunity to invest in this community. I received my Bachelor's degree in History and Religious Studies and my Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Virginia (Wahoowa!!!). I am currently working towards a Reading Specialist degree at George Mason University. Before joining the MTES family, I taught 3rd grade in Prince William County for three years, and prior to that I worked with special education preschool, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in Albemarle County. Some of my favorite things to do outside of school include reading, traveling, snuggling with my baby niece, and spending time with family and friends. I cannot wait to begin a new year in 1st grade!
