Hello there! Welcome to Hillside AM ECSE! My name is Elizabeth Tao. This will be my 12th(!) year teaching ECSE and my 6th year in LCPS. I previously worked for Fairfax County Public Schools. I received my MeD in Early Childhood from George Mason University and my BA from James Madison University. I am also licensed to teach PreK-3rd grade general education and English Language Learners but Early Childhood Special Education is my passion. I love teaching and learning from children with diverse abilities. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my husband Felix and our 4 birds, Sora, Yoshi, Loki, and Kenobi. My happy places are the beach and Disney World. My hobbies include assembling jigsaw puzzles and lego, and reading/watching sci-fantasy books and movies, especially Star Wars and Marvel movies.
