Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Maura Lankenau
My name is Maura Lankenau, and I'm thrilled to be a part of the Forest Grove community. I'm a proud Loudoun county resident and mother of two children. I hold a postgraduate and professional certification in primary education and a master's degree in psychology. When it comes to teaching, I believe in educating the whole child including the development of social skills, emotional growth, and flexible thinking. In our classroom, we encourage our classmates to be brave and take risks with learning. We regularly celebrate our differences and learn from each other. Each child is unique, therefore my approach towards teaching students is personalized to their needs and development. I'm most proud of maintaining a positive and loving environment in our collaborative classroom community. I look forward to meeting you, feel free to stop by the Ocean Friends classroom anytime!
