Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Thorne

My name is Melissa Thorne and I love being a part of the team at Creighton’s Corner Elementary School! I grew up in Loudoun County and live in Leesburg. When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading, running and cheering on my children from the sidelines.

I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Social Work. After many years of providing services to children, adolescents and families I decided to stay at home with my children. Serving as a volunteer in their classrooms helped me discover my passion for teaching. I began teaching preschool and later accepted a position in Special Education with Loudoun County Public Schools. I returned to school to earn my teaching license, with an ELL endorsement, from Shenandoah University. This will be my 5th year at CCE and my 7th year with LCPS.

It is my goal to provide a safe and welcoming environment where students can strive for their personal best. I am looking forward to another great year at Creighton’s Corner and building relationships throughout the school and our community.
