Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Hedges and I am so excited to be the Gifted Resource Teacher at Rolling Ridge Elementary! I grew up in Ellicott City, MD with my parents and younger brother. I always wanted to follow in the footsteps of my mom and grandmother to become a teacher. In 2015, I graduated with my Elementary Education degree from University of Maryland and then moved to Spain to grow my Spanish language skills and teach English for a year. One year turned into three when I met my now husband, who is from England. In 2018, we spent a year in Shenzhen, China teaching English in an after-school setting.
In 2019, we moved back to Maryland, where I taught 4th grade for 3 years in Anne Arundel County. After many postponed attempts, we finally got married in July 2022 at a lakeside venue in one of my favorite places, Northern Michigan. Soon after, we moved to Leesburg. I'm really grateful to be a part of the LCPS and Rolling Ridge family! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have about the gifted program. I hope you all have an amazing school year!!
