Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Ann VanAlsburg and I love working at Cool Spring! I graduated from the University of Virginia with a bachelor of Arts degree and I received a Master degree in Reading through Shenandoah University. I have also been endorsed as an English Language teacher since 2017. I love working with English Learners as they develop a new language while also sharing their diverse backgrounds with us. My most important goal as a teacher is to help students feel happy and welcome at school as they grow in their learning!
I am married and have raised four children who are now all college age or in their own careers. I like being out in nature, especially hiking in the mountains. I also enjoy bicycling in the countryside and kayaking. I love to read and am a huge animal lover, especially of dogs. I have a Border Collie named Pepper that keeps me busy. I look forward to another wonderful year at Cool Spring!
