She holds a B.A.in English from Stony Brook University, an M.S. in Library and Information Science from The Catholic University of America, and has taught Language Arts and English for Language Learners in Maryland before becoming a librarian.
    Ms. Gwinn-Casey and her husband have a daughter who graduated from college, another daughter in college, and a son who is a senior at L.C.H.S. They have lived in Loudoun County for 20 years. In her free time, she enjoys concerts, piano, crafts, reading, walking her dog, Josie, and spending time with family and friends! 
    Ms. Kessler 
    I am looking forward to a fantastic year ahead at Belmont Ridge Middle School, virtually! I wish we could be in school together, but I am looking forward to seeing you online!  Our library team will be sharing lessons and resources through our Schoology course as well as on our Library Google Site.
    I am from the suburbs of Pittsburgh and received my B.S. Degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Pittsburgh.   I attended Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and received my M.S. Degree in Exceptionalities.  Most recently, I received my endorsement as a Library Media Specialist from Radford University. 
    This is my 20th year in education. Before coming to Belmont Ridge, I worked in Fairfax County as a librarian for six years. Prior to becoming a librarian, I was a special education teacher for eight and half years in Fairfax and Henrico Counties.
    I live in Loudoun County with my husband, two children, and our dog, Lulu. I enjoy reading, biking, traveling, and spending time with my family. 
    Ms. Hough 
    I am very excited to be working at Belmont Ridge Middle School and looking forward to another great year. A little about myself, I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. After getting married, I moved with my husband to Texas and then West Virginia before moving to Virginia. I have lived in Loudoun County with my husband and three children since 1997. My first career was in Nursing. After 12 years of working as a nurse, I decided to stay home and raise my three children. 
    In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, going to the gym, and traveling.
