Ms. Michala Pellegrino

Hello my Preschool Lab Families! 

My name is Michala Pellegrino and I am one of the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) teachers here at Legacy Elementary! I will be working with Kirsten Poovey as my assistant, and we are so excited to have your child in our class this year!

I graduated from James Madison University (GO DUKES) with a Bachelor's degree in 2019 and am working on completing my Master in Special Education. I was born and raised in Loudoun, and currently have both parents working in the county as administrators. 

It has always been a passion of mine to work with our littlest learners; they're capable of so much, and with the right support and guidance, have an opportunity to grow as students and individuals each day. I cannot wait to see where this adventure takes our class this year as we explore, play, and create together. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me at
