My name is Chelsea Novotny and I am so excited for my first full year at RLC! I began teaching in January 2020 and can't wait to continue my journey as a Coyote! I am from Central Pennsylvania and moved to Northern Virginia to teach for LCPS. I received my Bachelor's degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and completed the Early Childhood/PreK-4 Education Post-Baccalaureate program at Lock Haven University. Previous to teaching, I worked as a Therapeutic Support Staff member in several school districts in Pennsylvania. When I am not at school, I enjoy exploring new places, trying new restaurants, and staying active.
My goal as a teacher is to create a fun and engaging classroom environment so your child can have a successful year. I look forward to learning alongside your child this year!
