Mr. John Tuck

I am very excited to be starting my first year as the principal at Sully Elementary School!  It is an honor to be joining the Sully community.  I look forward to working closely with the staff, students, families, and community to create an environment where all students are able to thrive and develop a love for learning.  

Prior to coming to Sully, I served as a 5th grade teacher at Rolling Ridge for five years prior to serving as the assistant principal for 5 years.  While teaching at Rolling Ridge, I was named the 2016 Loudoun County Teacher of the Year.  Prior to coming to Rolling Ridge, I taught three years in Cumberland Elementary in Cumberland County, VA as a reading teacher and one year at Bacon District Elementary in Charlotte County, VA as a science teacher.  While teaching at Bacon District Elementary, I was named the Elementary School Teacher of the Year in Charlotte County.  Quality instruction is at the core of everything that I believe about education.  I look forward to working with the school community to ensure that the needs of every student at Sully are met this school year.

My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education from Bridgewater College and a Master’s Degree in Education with a concentration in Administration and Supervision from Shenandoah University.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife Layne, who teaches at Ashburn Elementary, and my daughters Harper, Kennedy, and Bailey.  I also enjoy watching movies, hunting, and watching the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Orioles play.

I know that this is going to be a great year at Sully Elementary School!  If you need anything, I am always available.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  You can reach me using email at or by calling the school.


Mr. John Tuck, Principal
