Welcome, Meadowland Families! My name is Wes Strayer and I will be serving as Meadowland's Division Instructional Facilitator.
The 2019-2020 school year will be my seventh year in LCPS. I am moving into this new role after being a classroom teacher. During my time in the classroom, I worked within the Newton-Lee and Rosa Lee Carter communities where I taught a mixture of both upper and lower grades. Most of my teaching career was spent in kindergarten! I have a passion for primary education.
As an Instructional Facilitator, I am passionate about all student learning and ensuring all students reach their fullest potential. Part of the high-quality instruction from LCPS that I am most passionate about is Project Based Learning. I believe that all students learn best when they are able to see real-world, practical, authentic connections between their learning and the world around them.
I am origininally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. After high school, I attended West Chester University of Pennsylvania and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Early Grades Education (PK-4). After moving to Virginia, I went back to school where I earned my Masters Degree in Education with a specialization in Teacher Leadership. In my free time, I enjoy baking, running, being outdoors, and spending time with my dog, Greyson.
If you have any questions about my role, please feel free to email me. I am looking forward to a wonderful year full of fun student learning here at Meadowland!
