Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tabitha Dennis

Dear Families,


My name is Tabitha Dennis and I am honored to be your child’s teacher this year. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the first grade team at Cardinal Ridge!


I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA and now live in Bristow, VA.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Saint Leo University and my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Old Dominion University.


Outside of school, I love baking, painting, doing crafts, taking photos, writing, hiking, and spending time with my husband, son, daughter, and our two rescue dogs- Finn and Fiona!


My goal for your child, more than anything this year, is to foster a love for learning, exploring, and seeking to know more about the amazing world around us!


I can't wait to get to know you all! If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, always feel free to contact me at


I am looking forward to a fabulous year and hope you are too!


Mrs. Dennis
