• Hello Stars!

    My name is Mrs. Opseth and and I am VERY excited to be teaching 1st grade this year at Frederick Douglass Elementary School! I graduated from Shepherd University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and am currently pursuing my master's degree as a reading specialist through Shenandoah University.

    I am coming from Frederick County, VA where I just finished my fourth year teaching 1st grade. My husband and I moved to Sterling, VA from West Virginia this year to be closer to his work. We miss the mountains, but are enjoying all that Loudoun County has to offer. We have discovered a new love for Mediterranean food!

    In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors(kayaking, hiking, boating, biking, etc.), working out at the gym, traveling/exploring new places, being an aunt, and spending time with friends and family. I am looking forward to an AMAZING year with my 1st grade Stars!
