Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and Welcome to the English Language Department at Dominion Trail ES. My name is Mirna Chatila! I am very excited to join Dominion Trail ES as an EL teacher and will be supporting the 4th and 5th grade teams. This is my thirteenth year following my passion in teaching. Previously I taught Kindergarten in private schools. I graduated in 2004 with a BA in English Language and Literature. In 2013 I earned an endorsement in teaching English as a Second Language from Educate VA. I live in Aldie with my husband and two children. Angelina is a 5th grader and Joey is a 1st grader, both at Pinebrook ES. I also have a parrot pet “NALA”, from the “Lion King”. I enjoy spending my free time playing with my kids.
I am committed to provide a fostering and informative environment, in collaboration with my students, parents, colleagues and administration. My duty is to educate myself about my students’ cultures, personal stories and their background knowledge, to attain an essential understanding of their emotional, social and academic skills
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any concerns or questions, it will be my pleasure to serve you and your child.
