My name is Ms. Looney, and I am excited to join FDES as a new Art Teacher!
I received my Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree from VCU's School of the Arts with a concentration in Art Education. I also have minors in Art History, as well as Painting & Printmaking. While I was in college, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Guatemala to teach English and Arts Integration! I began my teaching career three years ago in Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia where I taught Elementary Art. I was also recognized for the FCPS Region 2 Outstanding New Elementary Teacher Award.
I was born and raised in Ashburn, VA. I love to spend time on the water in Northern Neck, VA. I am a HUGE Washington Capitals fan and frequently attend games with my family and friends. I love traveling and visiting Richmond, VA to visit museums and see the cities new murals. I love attending art workshops to gain project inspiration for student projects! I am so excited to be a part of this community, and I look forward to begin this new creative adventure with my new team, students, and families!
