Welcome to Catoctin Elementary School and Miss Viragh's Classroom

  • My name is Maryia Viragh.  I am your Preschool Afternoon Special Education Teacher at Catoctin ES.

    I was born in Belarus and came to the USA 13 years ago.  I am a US citizen.  I completed Teachers' College in Pinsk and Mozur in Belarus and, upon my arrival in the USA, I received a full scholarship from Touro College Graduate School in New York, where I received my Master’s Degree in General and Special Education.

    I started my teaching career in Belarus, as an ESOL Teacher.  In the USA, I had several consulting assignments in the Education field, as a Russian Language Teacher and also a one-year consulting job with PPM Managamen in Jakarta Indonesia. 

    In the USA, I worked as an Elementary Special Education Teacher at Chesterbrook, ES, Mclean, VA and as Special Education IA at Woodburn ES in Falls Church.

    I have completed numerous education-oriented courses. I am licensed in General Education, Special Education, and ESOL.
