    Hello Arcola Family and Friends!

    My name is Steven Charlish and I am so very excited about starting my third year as Assistant Principal here at Arcola.

    I have been involved in education for the past 23 years and have been in Loudoun County since 2006. I have been at Arcola since 2017.

    I was born in England, just outside of London, and then moved to the West of England to study education.  Before coming to the United States in 2006, I was teaching third through fifth grade at schools in the city of Bristol, in the west of England. I was also lucky enough to teach in New Zealand and Nicaragua.

    I graduated with honors from Bath Spa University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative English and Studies of Childhood with Qualified Teacher Status. Since then, I have earned my Master’s in Educational Studies from Shenandoah University, my Virginia Endorsement in Gifted Education, and my Professional Certificate in Educational Leadership and Administration.

    Outside of school, I am an avid football (soccer) fan, Tottenham Hotspur to be precise, and I enjoy many American sports, such as football (Go Commanders), hockey (Go Caps), and baseball (Go Nats). I am a local sports guy! I love playing golf, traveling, and generally anything that can help me be outside!

    I am thoroughly looking forward to continuing my work here as Assistant Principal at Arcola and growing relationships with all our wonderful students and their families.
