Miss Katherine Ruggieri


Hello, Redwings! I am so excited to join the Flock at Cardinal Ridge for the 2022-2023 school Year. I will be servicing students in Grades Kindergarten and 3rd. I am originally from Cranston, Rhode Island but I just recently moved to Loudoun County. I have already fallen in love with the area and can’t wait to explore more. I am so excited to be a LCPS Special Educator. I graduated from Penn State University with a Master’s in Special Education, as well as my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. 

I am most looking forward to helping students reach their full potential and supporting each scholar’s unique strengths and goals. I hope to ensure students feel safe, happy, and loved during their academic journeys!

When I am not teaching, you can find me going to the beach! I also love reading, doing yoga, and trying out new food spots. 

I am looking forward to an amazing school year at CRE! If you have any questions please contact me via email:
