Welcome to 5th Grade!

  • Hello, my name is Emily Cochran.  This will be my third year here at Arcola and I couldn't be more excited to share the year with you.  I live with my family on a farm in western Loudoun County.  We raise chickens and sheep and have cats and dogs, too!  When I have time, I love to read and go hiking.  

    I am a Loudoun native and have lived in Loudoun my entire life.  In my senior year at Loudoun Valley High School, I participated in the Loudoun teacher cadet program and my decision to teach was solidified.  I went on to attend Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia and obtained a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. The education program there was rich in content and experience and prepared me well for the classroom.  

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have by emailing me at emily.cochran@lcps.org.  I can't wait for this upcoming school year!
