Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Lorraine Cheng-Yip. I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher for the 2020/2021 school year. This will be my second year at Countryside, and my 11th year teaching. I was born and raised in New York. I started my teaching career as a Learning Specialist in New York City, where I taught for seven years. I've worked in Catholic schools, charter schools, and independent schools. Prior to my time at Countryside, I taught first, second, and third grade Humanities at an independent school in McLean, Virginia. I have a bachelor's in Sociology and a minor in Child and Family Studies from Stony Brook University. I received a dual master's in Childhood Education and Special Education from New York University.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy traveling with my husband, going back to New York to spend time with our family and friends, and exploring all that Virginia has to offer!
While this year will look different, I am excited to get to know your students and families. I know that together we can make this school year a positive one that is full of growth and learning!
