Mrs. Karen Land

Hello!!  I am so happy to be part of the Cool Spring staff again this year!


I was born and raised in ski country, south of Buffalo.  After high school, I attended SUNY Geneseo, earning  a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Master of Arts Degree in Reading Education.  Remaining in western New York after graduation, I taught fourth grade for eleven years.  

In 1996, I  moved to northern Virginia and was hired by LCPS as a Reading Specialist. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working in several wonderful schools around the county. I am thrilled to be part of  the staff at Cool Spring again, for the 2020-21 school year, where I will serve the staff and families as a half day Reading Specialist every afternoon.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any reading related questions or concerns.
